More About the Author

I teach on an MA TESOL program for the New School, New York, and live in Spain. I am the author of a number of books on language and methodology, including How to Teach Grammar, How to Teach Vocabulary and How To Teach Speaking (Pearson), Uncovering Grammar, Beyond the Sentence and An A-Z of ELT (all published by Macmillan), Natural Grammar (winner of a British Council Innovations award in 2005) and Grammar (Oxford University Press); and Conversation (with Diana Slade) and The CELTA Book (with Peter Watkins) both for Cambridge University Press. My latest book, Teaching Unplugged (Delta Publishing, co-written with Luke Meddings) won a British Council Innovations award in 2010. I am currently the series editor for the Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers.

My teacher training duties involve teaching courses in methodology and pedagogical grammar, both on-line and face-to-face, for the New School MA TESOL program. I also run workshops, and give talks and webinars, on a regular basis, and of a primarily practical nature, as well as moderating a very active blog for teachers (www.scottthornbury.wordpress.com)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By alternative duck on 6 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
Being a big fan of Thornbury I had to have his book about grammar as from the summer onwards I am supposed to teach beginners English with a lot of grammar on the curriculum - knowing that the old instructional grammar lessons do not work out so well for students I am using the summer to find a better solution. This book offers you a lot of theory about the way that grammar is learned in real life (excluding school) meaning acquired as a contrast to being learned/ taught... It takes into account all the difficulties that there are in school to a different approach and besides theory offers practical help and examples and tasks - I regard it as very helpful for a teacher of EFL - even with adults - however I will find out how practical it is after the schoolyear - at the moment all thumbs up for the book and its ideas.

OK it's Scott Thornbury but for god sake I couldnt believe how thin and short this book is. £20 is too expensive for what you get.

I used this for my DELTA module 2 and highly recommend it. Thornbury goes through some excellent ideas, which even experienced teachers can learn from. It's written in a very accessible and friendly way, making it exceptionally easy to read!

Great Book for Teachers Who Advocate Student-Centered Learning 10 Aug. 2013
By David Cassaday - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So many of the grammar books on the market today still rely heavily on traditional grammar terminology and traditional teaching methods. It is no wonder many students feel learning grammar is both daunting and boring. Scott's approach to assisting students uncover and ultimately discover grammar through their own practice opportunities is refreshing. Thank you, Scott!
