Reviews

  • '...non-native speaker teachers can find useful strategies to develop their proficiency in the target language, native-speaker teachers can pick up ideas on how to understand, ...and the new cultural context where they are to teach.' Modern English Teacher - Volume 21/4
  • 'This is an excellent book for less experienced teachers of young learners.' Humanising Language Teaching Magazine for teachers and teacher trainers
  • This is best described as an exceptionally good teacher's resource book. In 28 chapters there are several dozen excellent teaching ideas for 5-12 year-olds grouped into nine sections. Each chapter and section has a descriptive title that actually makes sense, e.g. Chapter 7: 'Healthy competition'. (This is harder to achieve than one might think.) Each chapter ends with a well-founded statement of rationale. The parts are: Knowing and challenging your learners; Encouraging your students to learn; Going beyond the coursebook; Empowering your learners; Assessment; Playing with the sounds of English; Bringing the real world into the classroom; Using make believe, performance, and metaphor; For the teacher: Language and cultural contexts. All the activities encourage the use of spoken English by the teacher (e.g., not a dvd): in the short but informative introduction, the authors say why. This looks like a really good book. The Teacher Trainer Journal, Vol 29/3
