Reviews

'The chapter entitled "Background Considerations" is a veritable treasure trove of notions and insights covering a wide range of language-related topics...This book, I would say, is an essential read for those who may be contemplating committing themselves to what appears to be a challenging, but no doubt thoroughly rewarding, career in language teaching, but Waldorf teachers in general would find in it much of relevance for them too.'
