Society and the Language Classroom provides a new perspective on classroom research. Through a series of case studies, it examines the ways that learners and teachers behave in English language classrooms in different parts of the world, including Australia, South Africa, Indonesia, Japan, Kenya, China and Pakistan, and at primary, secondary and tertiary level.

This approach to the interpretation of classroom behaviour has important implications, particularly for teachers, teacher educators and curriculum planners.
