Authors discuss theory, terminology and particular methodologies and contexts. This publication, from 1978, provides a useful introduction to pioneer approaches to self-directed learning and individualisation in ELT at the time.

Also recorded are ways in which UK practitioners were learning from US educationists and psychologists, and from French counterparts in language teaching. The final contributor raises more questions than he can answer about the role of the ESP and EAP teacher in an effort to stimulate debate about what students need and want, and about how and what teachers should teach.
