The accompanying DVD is useless - is it just my copy?
on 25 October 2012
I don't understand why no previous reviewer has commented on the fact that the DVD that accompanies this book bears no resemblance whatsoever to the text. I agree entirely that the book itself is well-written, clear and covers all the aspects of teaching English that a new or inexperienced teacher could want. But I have not been able to try out many of the exercises set out in the book for myself due to the irrelevance of the DVD. Is it just my copy that is a dud? For example, p.45 refers to Learning Teaching resources and asks the reader to plan for a lesson using the 'Beach picture' resource. What Beach picture resource? What Learning Teaching Resources? I have no such items on my DVD. And there are countless similar discrepancies. I would dearly love to know what has gone wrong. I had already started making notes in my text book, so I can't return it, but nor can I use it to its full potential. And if anyone wants to sell me a working DVD, I'd love to hear from them!
This has been a costly disappointment.
