This is not to say that learning is communication, nor is it to say that academic performance exists in a simple causal relationship to successful classroom communication: Successful communication between the teacher and students is a necessary condition of academic achievement. Effective teaching presupposes effective communication. The teacher makes effective communication possible by identifying the needs of the students, addressing these needs at the appropriate level, and creating a relaxed atmosphere in which a free, democratic flow of discussion is possible. This book focuses on how far the policies, principles and practices of language teaching and learning are, or can be, informed by theoretical considerations and empirical findings from the linguistic disciplines. This book deals with research and practice in communication and communication technologies of language learning and teaching.
