Abstract or Description

This book has brought home the idea that language education is about listening. Listening to what happens on the ground: the work of language teachers, educators and literacy specialists, and the connections that are made in between. It aligns with ways of doing that move away from ideal, disembodied and abstract processes that are applied top-down. In doing this, it has shown that language education finds its temporary shapes and contours by identifying with particular localities, inhabiting particular practices, and connecting with the different voices and relationships taking part in it.
