Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Language Teachers, Politics and Cultures
Written By: Michael Byram
Karen Risager

Foreign language teaching is social interaction, subject to the influences and forces of the societies in which it takes place. Geo- political changes have an effect on language teachers in their beliefs about their work and in the everyday methods they use in their classrooms. This book, based on empirical research in Denmark and England, is an exploration of the effects of major contemporary changes as they are perceived and understood by language teachers.
