How can an English class become a transformative space for both teachers and learners?

When the teacher intentionally uses strategies and builds skills for peace-building and reconciliation, the classroom can be a place where relationships and communication transform people. This text encourages those engaged in the teaching of English as a second or foreign language to first consider why we might strive to teach English for reconciliation, and then addresses the contexts, individuals, and resources which are involved.

Dormer and Woelk’s well-informed, yet highly readable and practical book is an excellent introduction for any language teacher who wishes to help language learners discover how to interact more harmoniously with people from other groups and cultures, and even themselves become peacebuilders and agents of reconciliation. For Christians, this book is particularly valuable as a guide to how the Christian peacemaking mandate can be incarnated and lived out in English language classrooms. -- Don Snow, PhD Language and Culture Center, Duke Kunshan University
