    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This three-volume set brings together current research in the history of language learning and teaching (HoLLT) in Europe and beyond. Providing the first overview of research in the field, it will be an indispensable reference for teachers, teacher educators and all those interested in the history of language learning and teaching and the history of applied linguistics avant la lettre. The chapters in Volume II present case studies from the period when modern languages became established in school curricula across Europe and when modern language teaching became professionalized. The chapters consider 19th-century innovations in Europe including the Reform Movement and its precursors, as well as developments in policy and practice in the 20th century. Volume I, 17th-18th Century Europe, can be ordered here, and Volume III, Across Cultures, similarly here. Nicola McLelland is Professor of German and History of Linguistics at the University of Nottingham. She has published widely in the history of German linguistics and the history of language learning, and is co-editor of the journal Language & History. Dr Richard Smith is a Reader in ELT and Applied Linguistics at the University of Warwick. Founder of the Warwick ELT Archive, he has published widely in the fields of history of language learning/teaching and applied linguistics; language learner and teacher autonomy; and language teacher development.
