Not really what it says on the cover
on 21 May 2017
I don't think the title and the blurb fairly describe this book . I thought I was buying ...well, A guide to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, published by a University with a good reputation which issues well respected credentials in the field. Something full of guidance for designing, delivering and evaluating English lessons. Instead, it is more of a mile-wide, inch-deep survey of research findings in a myriad of subtopics. Useful, I am sure, in cramming for an undegraduate-level exam in the theory of TESOL, or writing one of those he-said, she-said academic essays, but as a guide to teaching - no, nyet, non, ikke, ei.
