This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
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.
