As the number of children learning EAL in primary schools increase, trainee teachers need to develop the professional skills and expertise to teach them. This text reconsiders which children should come under the umbrella of EAL and provides practical strategies for teaching them in an inclusive classroom. It asks 'what do we mean by EAL?' and covers essential theories of learning and approaches to teaching. Chapter topics include; speaking and listening; and reading and writing, and activities and case studies to link theory to practice are provided throughout.

'As someone new to teaching and anxious to gain the means to help all children, I found Conteh's book gave me the backstory and tools to look forward with confidence to teaching EAL learners. The book is snappy, concise and easy to read; all rather important when on an intense time-limited course. I would recommend this to other PGCE students'
-Richard Newbury
