An A-Z of ELT | Applied Linguistics and Language Education |

Scott Thornbury's blog...I was first exposed to Scott Thornbury in a Grammar for TESOL class. His philosophy of teaching grammar, both form and function, through contextualized activities is grounded in second language acquistion research; however, his work is very accessible, offers very practical ideas, and is always a joy to read. He is clearly passionate about language education and is concerned with connecting teachers to innovative ideas and techniques. He developed Dogme, a limited materials approach to language teaching.
