    "... concise definitions and explanations, the book contains much teacher-friendly material... clearly laid out, ideal for the teacher who requires a quick reference and some useful teaching tips... For the trainee teacher particularly on pre-experience courses such as CELTA… it provides an easy to use learning aid. "

    "... a useful reference and resource for practicing teachers and ELT trainers... Of particular interest to trainee teachers will be the three chapters at the start of the book dealing with the form and function of verb tenses."

    I am cognizant of the value of coursebooks and recommend their use to varying degrees, hence the many extracts from coursebooks in this publication. But besides the coursebook there is a growing popularity of the use of authentic materials, games, instant lessons, etc, so the teacher now has to operate with more unpredictable language in the classroom. Today’s language learner is sophisticated and demands both communicative activities and competent grammar explanation.
    It must be stressed that the activities in this book are designed for teachers, not for language learners. The extracts from ELT coursebooks and the Teaching Notes are intended to show the difference between what the teacher should know and what and how they should teach.

    A Concise Grammar for English Language Teachers excels at actually making grammar easy; easy to understand, easy to master, easy to apply in the classroom. Its underlying aim is to help teachers become au fait with the terminology used in modern ELT coursebooks and to build confidence in their ability to explain grammar rules, both structural and functional.
    Among the bold innovations with this book is its A4 size, which more readily accommodates the plentiful and highly commended tables of grammar items. It is also the first English teacher’s grammar to use ‘tree diagrams’ to show sentence constituents in full clarity. Other strengths include the many excerpts from coursebooks and resource books, plus the excellent practical tips throughout.

    Essential Phonetics for English Language Teachers is for teachers who are unsure of their skills in and their approach to pronunciation teaching. This booklet fulfils its title, dispensing with academic detail and lengthy practice sections. The focus is on the ability to recognize and correct errors, particularly those that can't be corrected by 'listen and repeat' instruction alone. Notable innovations include vowel charts for both British and American accents and examples of simple, effective boardwork. Common learner difficulties and tips on teaching activities feature regularly. A unique, incredibly compact and valuable work.
