Reviews

'a veritable treasure trove of notions and insights covering a wide range of language-related topics […] an essential read for those who may be contemplating committing themselves to what appears to be a challenging, but no doubt throroughly rewarding, career in language teaching, but Waldorf teachers in general would find in It much of relevance for them too.'
