This book is a good basis for anyone starting off on a TEFL career and/or studying for the TEFL certificate. The chapters are simply written and run through the basic approach to teaching english. It gives a good introduction but is really a one-off read and you are unlikely to use it as a reference book during your career.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful introduction 11 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
I read this in preparation for CELTA and subsequently when reviewing what I was doing in my classes. Useful. NB Much more practical than Harmer's 'The Practice of English Teaching', which is a dreadful book...

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad 27 Feb 2010
By Andrew
Format:Paperback
I bought this book when I started teaching six years ago because it was on my CELTA course reading list. Unfortunately it has never been of any use to me in the classroom. It always seems to be either stating the blindingly obvious such as why it is important to teach reading, writing etc., or focussing on entirely the wrong things, e.g. the tenses or the quality of the tape recorder you use. My abiding memory of the book, though, is the system it has hit upon to suck all the enjoyment out of teaching: The "Engage - Study - Activate" sequence, which runs throughout the book; First you need to Engage the students, then they Study, then you Activate this knowledge and then perhaps they Study again so you have sequences like ESAS. Deathly! If you're looking for practical teaching tips written concisely, get "Practical Techniques", a real gem.

This is a very overated book,
For anyone with a basic command of the English language, much of the content is unnecessary. Whilst many CELTA and TESOL courses imply you this book is an essential , it really is not. I felt the price was far to high for a softback book which gives little practical advice or materials for teaching. On finishing my TESOL 4 week course i promptly sold the book and was glad to be shut of it to be honest.
