Long description:

ELT: The Basics offers a clear, non-jargonistic introduction to English language teaching for EFL/ESL teachers in training, early career teachers, those considering taking up ELT, and experienced teachers who may want to read about the way the profession has developed and continues to evolve.



Key features of this book include:





  • Real classroom data and data from ELT training programmes



  • Discussion of a wide range of learning contexts and different types of learners (young learners, adults, third age, academic, refugees and immigrants, etc.)



  • Comparisons of different types of syllabuses and methods, and discussion of current technologies



  • An emphasis on classroom interaction as the key to maximising learning

Featuring a glossary of key terms, cartoons and illustrations, further reading, personal reflection points, and discussion of the most important and relevant research, this book is a clear and accessible introduction to the complex field of ELT.



This admirably accessible introduction to ?the basics? of ELT provides a review of key elements of English language teaching that is ideally suited to trainee teachers and those early in their career. Drawing on the authors? wide-ranging knowledge and expertise, this informative text combines real world data with reflective tasks as it outlines key elements of language teaching and learning. With its suggestions for further reading and discussion of pathways for professional development, it provides an excellent overview for those starting out in ELT.
