Description : Today, there are about four nonnative-speaking English teachers for every teacher who is a native speaker. More English teachers work in non-English-speaking settings than in English-speaking settings, and most are natives of the countries in which they teach. This volume focuses on the challenges faced by English teachers for whom Englishis a second (or even third or fourth) language. Four themes receive special emphasis: communicative language teaching, proficiency, language learning, and practicality. Chapters 1-5 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning. Chapters 6-13 discuss the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms. An afterword suggests paths for teachers who want to pursue further study, and appendixes offer a starter kit for course planning, samplecourse plans, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.

Description : This book is one of the most influential research studies on Second Language Learning ever undertaken. The Good Language Learner addresses key problems for teachers about the strategies that successful learners use, the attitudes they show to the language they are learning, the nature of their most successful experiences and similar issues. It is based on the direct experience of a wide range of learners. It enables us to recognise the combined roles of fluency activity and natural communication on the one hand, and accuracy activity with formal understanding of the language system and the mistakes that one is liable to make as a learner, on the other hand. Few works of empirical analysis in language teaching have had so much influence, and this edition should be an essential component of any teacher's library in local authority centres, schools, teacher education institutions, and the home library of language teachers.
