'This book provides an excellent, practical guide on how to develop a bilingual approach in the classroom. In each chapter there are examples of practical, easy-to-implement strategies, which are firmly rooted in good EAL practice. Rather than suggesting that teachers have to adopt something that is additional or new, the idea is to build a bilingual approach into ongoing classroom activities and approaches, thereby promoting a sense of cultural belonging for all children' - Janna Welsby, EAL Programme Consultant, Manchester Education Partnership
