 About the Book 

Ive been using this book as the main textbook for a Classroom English course in a teacher training program for a number of years.At first glance, it wasnt a book that I would have chosen because it just doesnt look very useful. The activities dont jump out at you like they do in other books- however, the book in general tends to be much deeper than others that are on the market. Students (teacher-trainees) get a very good understanding of how to conduct entire classes in English.Once I got into it, I realized that not only is it a classroom English book, but it also touches on methodology, management, and curriculum as well. If it didnt, 20 weeks of Classroom English would be torture for me to teach, and more so for the students in the class.I recommend this book to those in teacher training programs, even if it is not the textbook youre assigned.
