This book provides a practical overview of the most important teaching methods in the ESL field. The book devotes a chapter to each technique, from Grammar/Translation to ALM to Communicative Language Learning.
It is clearly written and the methods are presented in a format that facilitates pre-service and in-service teachers’ understanding of the theoretical background of language teaching.
Sample lessons are described in minute detail, taken apart and then examined step by step to see what the underlying principles of the lesson are.
Every method has something good that can be used. The secret of effective teaching is to have a variety of relevant methods to pick and choose from.
