Learning the craft of English language teaching by trial and error can take a long time and involve considerable emotional wear and tear on teachers and students. This book accelerates the process by offering a nontechnical introduction to English teaching geared toward native-English-speaking teachers working outside their home countries. This revised edition includes an expanded discussion of student-directed language learning, workbook activities for volunteer teachers enrolled in courses or studying the book individually, and a full array of culture-based discussion topics for use as supplementary activities or core material for an English course. The book includes 16 chapters, organized as follows: œ Chapters 1-6 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning. œ Chapters 7-14 discusses the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms. œ Chapter 15 addresses adaptation to life in the host country. œ Chapter 16 suggests paths for volunteers who become interested in being professional language teachers. This book also includes useful appendixes with a starter kit for course planning, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.
