Publisher Comments:

As a teacher of English as a foreign or second language, have you ever wished you knew more about your students' mother-tongues? Learner English is a practical reference book which compares the relevant features of the students' own languages with English, helping teachers to predict and understand the problems their students have. The nineteen chapters, each of which covers one language background, are written by specialists with experience in teaching students from the areas concerned. The chapters describe and explain the most important typical pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and other mistakes of learners who speak Dutch/Flemish, Scandinavian languages (except Finnish), German, French, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Greek, Russian, Farsi, Arabic, Turkish, Indian languages, West African languages, Swahili, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai. The book is accompanied by a cassette with authentic examples of the various accents described in the book.

Synopsis:

This new edition has twenty-two chapters dealing with the typical mistakes of learners who speak a range of languages. New language chapters include Polish, Malay/Indonesian and Korean. An audio cassette and audio CD are available separately. These contain authentic examples of the various accents described in the book .

An excellent title/book. I had searched the net for days for this sort of information with only partial success and then came upon exactly what I was looking for. I have to do a workshop for ESOL classroom assistants to raise their awareness of how students' L1 may interfere with learning English. This is perfect.
