Lucilla Lopriore. 2012. Buzzwords in ELT. Unveiling English. Roma: Editoriale Anicia.

This book is a collection of some of the most relevant issues today in teaching and learning English as a foreign and seconda language. Excellent for pre-service and in-service teacher training, but also as a good read for personal development.

Maria Cinque. 2011. E-teaching. Scenari didattici e competenze dei docenti nell’evoluzione del web. Palermo: Palumbo.

This book and its companion website is a much needed contribution in the area of e-teaching for educators, teachers, trainees and trainers.
