The entire PELT (Practical English Language Teaching) series offers a thorough yet practical overview of language teaching methodology for teachers and trainee teachers. The principles outlined in each chapter are richly illustrated with vignettes and extracts from real classrooms so the reader can see what the principles “look like” when realized in classroom teaching.

This book is divided into three sections: Exploring Skills, Exploring Language, and Supporting the Learning Process.

Critical areas of language teaching are comprehensively addressed with a specific focus on practical techniques, strategies, and tips.

Reflection questions invite readers to think about critical issues in language teaching while Action tasks outline strategies for putting new techniques into practice.

Thoughtful suggestions for books, articles, and Web sites offer resources for additional, up-to-date information.

Expansive glossary offers short and straightforward definitions of core language teaching terms.
