This book offers a range of perspectives and insights from around the world on the teaching and learning of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It brings together contributors from across six continents, who analyse a wide range of teaching and learning contexts, including primary, secondary, tertiary, private, and adult ESL/EFL classes. In doing so, they provide locally relevant accounts that nonetheless resonate with other contexts and wider concerns. This informative and practical edited collection will appeal to students and scholars who are interested in the four building blocks of language learning, as well as language education and teacher education.

"After reading it my expectations were fulfilled and I closed the book with many new ideas that had caught my attention. ... this volume provides the reader with an idea of how different perspectives and approaches are possible when tackling teaching problems and how these innovations might be implemented across contexts. This volume may be interesting for teacher-educators ... . It might also be attractive to teacher researchers, as it could prove a practical resource for their own research projects." (Maria Fernanda Rojas, Argentinian Journal of Applied Linguistics, Vol. 7 (2), November, 2019) "A fascinating collection of testimonies from English teachers all over the world and their experiences on teaching the four skills. ... International Perspectives on Teaching the Four Skills in ELT: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing is a compelling read for both novice English teachers and experienced ones. ... this volume is highly recommendable and a good read." (Carla Florencia Lescano, Argentinian Journal of Applied Linguistics, Vol. 7 (1), May, 2019)
