Focus on Grammar and Meaning explores how to teach grammar effectively to second or foreign language learners aged 5-18. It provides teachers with research insights that will help them to reflect on their classroom practice and enable them to experiment with different ways of teaching grammar.
Taking a 'systemic-functional' approach, the authors emphasize the importance of linking language and meaning in teaching. Key research studies on grammar instruction are featured, examples from real classroom practice are discussed, and activities are provided to help teachers relate the content to their own teaching context.
