The author's introduction calls this book a practical guide for teachers. While he explains clearly the theories behind the techniques, the word "practical" should be underlined. Dr. Huebener describes in detail a wide variety of materials and techniques. Teachers will already be familiar with many of them, but many are ingenious tricks of the trade which will be welcome additions to any classroom repertory. There is an emphasis on the use of materials in the teaching of language (as opposed to culture alone). It is a pleasure to see the classroom posters dusted off and brought into active play in teaching the language.
