Summary and Info
This book provides a new position from which to view language teaching. It does so by giving the first comprehensive account of the origin and development of the basic contributions to the field. Professor's Kelly's discoveries dispel the tendency to believe that great contributions to language teaching occurred only in the 20th Century. His discoveries clearly show that ideas in language teaching have advanced and retreated over nearly 2,000 years.Beginning in 500 B.C. with the Roman fascination with Greek rhetoric, Professor Kelly systematically worked out his way through thousands of references in many languages. Going deep into the roots of the subject, he uncovered documents of historic breakthroughs, which he records here for the first time in English. His research reveals that many of our "modern" contributions are really ages old.
