    Preface

    Brian Tomlinson

    This is a book of original chapters on current issues in materials devel-opment written by well-known contributors to the fi elds of applied lin-guistics and TEFL, most of whom have made presentations at MATSDA conferences.

    MATSDA (The Materials Development Association) is an interna-tional materials development association founded in 1993 by Brian Tomlinson to contribute to the development of quality materials for learners of second and foreign languages. It aims to bring together teach-ers, researchers, materials writers and publishers in a joint endeavour to stimulate and support principled research, innovation and develop-ment. It does this by holding conferences, running workshops, provid-ing consultants, publishing a journal ( Folio ) and stimulating books like this one.

    For further information about MATSDA and for application forms for membership contact Brian Tomlinson, President of MATSDA, brianjohntomlinson@gmail.com, or go to the MATSDA website at www.matsda.org.uk . The main aim of this book is to further the work of MATSDA in providing information, ideas and stimulus which will facilitate the application of current thinking and research to the practi-cal realities of developing and exploiting classroom materials. It also aims to stimulate further experimentation and innovation and thus to contribute to the continuing development of quality materials.
