Review:

"As CBLT has gained unprecedented attention and adoption globally, this book is timely, identifying and demystifying its characteristic features. This book is tailor-made, easily accessible and invaluable to anyone interested in CBLT. It provides the crucial background and practical information one needs to know about this educational approach. By examining studies conducted all over the world (e.g. Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Canada and Spain), this book reveals the strengths and pitfalls of CBLT implementation in different contexts, allowing readers to identify and refine pedagogy which suits their unique circumstance, and to ultimately help their learners to benefit from the essence of CBLT: improving and achieving the necessary language proficiency for subject matter learning such that the second language is not a hindrance to academic achievement."International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism 'With Focus on Content-Based Language Teaching, I am delighted to find accounts of such a wide scope of content-based programs for both language majority and language minority students. This book is well-researched and well-written, and succeeds in making complex material very accessible.'Marguerite Ann Snow, Professor in TESOL, California State University, Los Angeles "... readers [who are not familiar with CBLT approaches] will be delighted to come across Focus on Content-Based Language Teaching, written by Patsy M. Lightbown, renowned co-author of the well-known Second Language Acquisition textbook, How Languages are Learned... Overall, this 164-page book provides a clear and concise overview of CBLT and its implementation in different settings for both language majority and language minority students, as well as a comprehensive review of classroom-based research on CBLT with both young learners and adolescent learners."RELC Journal 'educational and comprehensive... this is a timely book, appearing just when the need is felt for more clarification regarding the various approaches encompassed by CBLT and for more detailed definitions with respect to its unique features and differences.'
