Is there a reason we can only download 52 out of over 200 pages? If there is a paid copy or such like can a link be put in for it?

Dear Nicciolai In the contents page it states that: This special online version of Young Learner English Language Policy and Implementation: International Perspectives has been produced to make those chapters with a more global perspective, chapters 1, 2, 3 and 25, available to a wider public, free of cost. The full version can be ordered through the Garnet Education website. Cheers Del
