'I highly recommend this volume because it is written from the perspective of real language teachers sharing their experiences. The scope of coverage is very impressive, with contributions from a range of teaching contexts across the globe, and from teachers who identify as being native and non-native speakers of English. All chapters are research and evidence-based, and explicit in the methodologies employed, making the volume attractive to both student and practising teachers wanting to engage in their own research projects.' Fiona Farr, University of Limerick
