Description: The Practice of English Language Teaching is an essential guide for teachers of English. It explains current pedagogy to teachers who want to access the most relevant ELT practices and incorporate them into their lessons. The Practice of English Language Teaching includes: English as a world language Theories of language and language learning Learner characteristics which influence teacher decisions Guidance on managing learning Teaching language systems (grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation) Teaching language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) Practical teaching ideas The role of technology (old and new) in the classroom Assessment for language learning in the digital age About the accompanying DVD which runs for 3 hours For the fifth edition of The Practice of English Language Teaching, we decided to take a film crew out to see what English language lessons look like in different places, in different situations and, crucially, with different age groups. And so we asked a number of teachers if they would let us film them at work, doing one of their 'normal' lessons. With that in mind, we went to Ankara in Turkey and filmed two teachers, Asli Niluefer Usluel and Emel Atasoy, working with young learners. In the UK, we filmed at a residential summer school in the city of Oxford. Varinder Unlu and John Duthie taught teenagers from a variety of different countries and different language backgrounds. Back in Turkey, we had the chance to record lessons (taught by Zeynep Bueyuektuna and Çigdem Özen) for adult Turkish students who were getting ready to study at an English-medium university. In Mexico, at a private language school, we had the good fortune to film teachers Juan Pablo Monfón Jiménez, Ricardo Fajardo Cortés and Araceli Menchaca Sánchez with their adult Mexican students. In each case, after the lesson, I was able to interview the teachers on camera so that I could ask them about their lessons and about the issues that came up as a result of their teaching choices.

Review: The biggest problem with this book is that it doesn't know what it is. The name implies it is about English didactics, but it also tries to cover almost every other aspect of teaching - pretty much every topic from teaching 101 is mentioned in this book at some point or other. It allots a chapter to "being learners", "being teachers", "class size and different abilities", feedback, classroom management, seating arrangements (!), technology for learning, planning, and formative assessment. You might think these topics focus on the aspects of said topic that are most relevant to English education, but no, they all just describe the topic in general. All of these topics are decent in and of itself, but when you try to cram them into a book that is *also* about English didactics, the result is that each topic is treated superficially in the extreme - there is simply not enough space in one book to treat the topics at the necessary length. This leads us to ask the question: Who is the target audience for this book? Is it people who have just started studying education? If so, the topics must be fewer and treated in more depth. Is it teachers with some background in education, but who want to learn more about the specifics of English education? If so, chances are they already know about classroom management, planning lessons and so on, and reading a three-page refresher isn't really useful to us; they should've just scrapped these chapters and added more meat to the English-didactic related chapters. To emphasize just how superficial the topics are treated, look at the chapter "Managing for success". In the 8 pages this chapter spans, the author dedicates two pages to the topic "why problems occur" and lists up the family, expectations, approval, teacher actions, success and failure, and external factors as some reasons why they could. Obvious stuff any teacher have learnt already, and it goes without saying that within the span of 2 pages you aren't gonna learn anything new or even remotely come close to answer a question so broad as to "why problems occur". The writing is ridiculously incoherent. The best example here is chapter 4, pg. 54-55, which starts out by defining the terms "approach", "method", "procedure" and "technique" and adding that "the use and mis-use of these terms can make discussions of comparative methodology somewhat confusing". The rest of the chapter then goes on to discuss different language methodology while **not using the terms as they were defined in the opening of the chapter**, and are seemingly unaware that they do this - at least they aren't telling us why they are using the terms in a different way, or why they would bother defining terms that they aren't going to use anyways. The text frequently ends up not answering or describing anything related to the headlines or sub-headlines and chapters jump from topic to topic with little to no cohesion. An alternative headline to this review could be "old man talks about things" because I have the impression that the book was written this way: That some transcriber asks Harmer to freely associate around a topic and that they then transcribe this into a text. Repeat 3-400 times and you have a book. The book adds in a couple of citations here and there which adds to the impression. The way in which the book cites authors reminds me of the way a lazy student writes papers. A lazy students adds random and not very relevant statement that could be proven by [author, published year] in his text not for any particular reason other than having X books in the bibliography, and this is also the way that this book adds citations. All in all I think it's amazing that this book has as many good reviews as it has. Have any of these people actually read the book? Is it peer pressure? Bots? Is this book a status-signalling device or something? We may never know. But trust me, this book is crap and there is no reason for it to have been written.
