This book shows practical applications of language analysis theory in the TESOL classroom. This book covers the relevance of theories on language analysis to TESOL. It shows students how to understand and evaluate TESOL methodology, curriculum, and materials in terms of cooperation, politeness, conversation structure, ideology, power, varieties, domains and genre. Students will be able to consider different ways of teaching in relation to these theories and will be encouraged to design tasks and lessons with a sociological and cultural focus. It is written specifically for those studying TESOL teaching. It presents concepts and research in an accessible way, regardless of the student's level of teaching experience or linguistic study. It provides group tasks and independent activities, as well as suggestions for teachers to use in their own classrooms.
