This book is designed for English First Additional Language (EFAL) student teachers and in-service teachers. It addresses the EFAL teaching in both urban and rural contexts. Practical examples with case studies are used to portray issues that reflect the everyday challenges teachers meet in mediating learning and making sure that learners use English proficiently.

Issues deemed important for facilitating English as First Additional Language are covered, such as:
  • The importance of mother tongue in learning a second language;
  • Theories of second-language development and acquisition; and
  • Methodologies for teaching First Additional Language.
Student teachers and practising teachers can explore examples of trialled approaches on how to introduce English to contexts where the teacher is the only source of the language, as the learners don't encounter the language in their daily lives.
