Product description

'Extremely comprehensive and well written in terms of style -- accessible to the reader, but intelligent and expressing some fairly subtle concepts. Would that more ELT practitioners could do the same!...Certainly a good read for those thinking about and also those engaged in initial training -- or even post initial training stage' - Jenny Pugsley, Head of TESOL, Trinity College London 'It's essential reading whether you are simply curious about what is involved in training in ELT, need advice on choosing the right course, have already enrolled and want to make the most of your course, or are a new teacher just starting out. It's a book I wish I'd had when I was starting out in my ELT career, and that I wish had been available to many of the course participants I have tutored' - Lyn Strutt, ELT author and Chair of the British Council Families Association Each year, thousands of people all over the world take one of the hundreds of available short pre-service courses that lead to the award of a certificate in English Language Teaching (ELT) or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
