informal education

We present in this issue narratives of adult language acquisition. These are of interest in themselves, of course, but of interest also with regard to the teaching of language(s) in schools. Language teaching in school is often bogged down by the weight of scholarly tradition, literary history, and linguistic pride. It suffers, above all, from co-option into a system of syllabus, teaching, and examination, geared to competitive mark-gathering.

"A valuable handbook - a must read book!" writes contributor Karpagam Subramani.
