    I attended the recent open day at YSJ and asked about a reading list for TESOL and Linguistics Students.

    Here are the recommended books for the first year which will give you a good head start:

    1. Introducing language in use: a coursebook, 2nd ed. Merrison, Andrew John; Hall, Christopher J; Bloomer, Aileen; Griffiths, Patrick
    Published Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge, 2014
    2. An introduction to language and linguistics: breaking the language spell Hall, Christopher JPublished London: Continuum, 2005
    3. Semantics: a coursebook, 2nd ed.Hurford, James R; Heasley, Brendan; Smith, Michael BPublished Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. P., 2007
    4. Meaning in interaction: an introduction to pragmatics, Thomas, Jenny Published London: Longman, 1995
    5. An introduction to language Fromkin, Victoria, Rodman, Robert, Hyams, Nina M., 10th editionPublished Australia: Wadsworth Cengage Learning, 2014
