Product reviews for Making Every MFL Lesson Count

Hania Kryszewska, for Humanising Language Teaching, by Pilgrims
-‹This book like all the others in the series follow the success of Making Every Lesson Count so they present the same principle and are edited by the same team Shaun Allison and Andy Tharby, who have defined the six teaching and learning principles the books implement.

The aim of the book is to help the teachers encourage students to love learning foreign languages and excel in them. The procedure they propose are: Challenge, Explanation and Modelling, Practice, Questioning and Feedback. This approach is reflected in the division of the book into chapters and their structure. In a nutshell challenges looks at how to help students aim high, explanation helps acquire new knowledge and skills, modelling shows how to apply this new knowledge and skills, questioning offers an opportunity to think hard, deep and accurately, and finally in feedback students think about ways of further developing their knowledge and skills.

Each chapter presents a rationale for example the rationale of challenge referring to various aspects of language teaching and learning, with concrete examples of classroom practice. The book in question focuses mainly on secondary school contexts and would be of interest to teachers who teach any modern language. EFL/ELT teachers will definitely be inspired by this book, much more than by the other titles in this series.
