Books for review

VATE regularly receives review copies of texts from writers and publishers. This is a great way to trial new textbooks and novels with your class and gain feedback from your colleagues. You then get to share your review with all VATE members through the Idiom website. If you would like to receive and review one of the books listed below, please email Josephine Smith, Publications and Communications Officer,  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
