Jack C. Richards, University of Sydney and University of Auckland "A masterful account of the landscape of second language teacher education and the development of its theoretical assumptions and practices. It offers a unique and original conceptualization of the field and will be an invaluable resource for teachers, teacher educators and researchers."

Jeremy Harmer, Modern English Teacher "[an] extraordinary book... For anyone interested in teacher education this is a vital, compelling and provocative account of a lifetime's work."

Applied Linguistics "Freeman discusses themes in language teacher education literature from the past few decades, all the while adapting his considerable experience as a scholar in this area... worth reading by anyone involved in language teacher training, research, or related policy... Freeman should be applauded for the ease of readability in the book... As with other books in the Oxford Applied Linguistics series, I anticipate that this book will find its place as a formative text in the field."

Linguist List "Educating Second Language Teachers is strongly supported by Freeman's vast experience in language teaching education... [He] not only revises old notions, but he also provides a new design theory and poses central challenges in teaching languages, which will benefit all readers. While novice teachers will gain a complete and up-dated picture, experienced professionals will feel stimulated by the dynamic perspective on linguistic matters. Undoubtedly the book offers a solid foundation that will bolster the language preparation of new generations of language teachers."

EL Gazette "The several key texts by this author on language teacher education over the last quarter of a century have perhaps had more effect o...
