5.0 out of 5 stars Cambridge Guide to TESOL 8 Dec 2009
By Xpat
Said to be the teacher's bible and it certainly is! I use it a fair amount and can always find what I want easily. Highly recommended.

This book really is breathtaking in just how much it succinctly covers with more than enough core knowledge of key areas that TESOL, particularly TESOL post-graduate students should know.

Carter and Nunan have created an indispensible TESOL 'bible' for students who want to stay informed about the widest possible range of TESOL areas.

It is genuinely written in an interesting and highly condensed way with great bibliography suggestions at the end of each chapter. I'm proud to have it in my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars A concise insight into TESOL courses and topics 22 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This book is excellant for students and teachers alike. It has been clearly categorised for ease of reference and I found that this helped immensly for refering to topics and aspects of the course. Every thing that you need to know can be found in this book ranging from the history of various topics to the future trends of TESOL. A plus to this book is the ability to skip chapters or read from cover to cover. Each chapter has been broken down into subheadings which break up that block text. Whether you know all there is to know about TESOL or if you are someone who hasnt a clue (like myself at the time) You will after reading this book.A big thumbs up.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A book that is totally new and in good condition except some stains in some pages that could be erased which is 3 pounds cheaper than the 'new' books!! Love it, my first purchase in Amazon.UK.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cambridge Guide to TESOL 30 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed with the book as the title suggests that it is a guide to TESOL but it is really only relevant to someone undertaking studies into TESOL rather than the practicalities of actually teaching.
