Book description

What makes a good language teacher? This up-to-date, practical book addresses that question from a 'human' perspective, recognising that teachers are not just machines, but have feelings, needs and identities of their own. As the twenty-two topics of the chapters in this volume clearly indicate, language teachers are complex individuals, who are expected to have a range of personal qualities, to be able to satisfy the needs of their students and to have the knowledge and skills to provide instruction in a range of language areas. Not only that, but all of these requirements are constantly changing. The authors present new insights from the real teaching environment that will be an invaluable help to language teachers at all stages of professional development.


‘I highly recommend this volume because it is written from the perspective of real language teachers sharing their experiences. The scope of coverage is very impressive, with contributions from a range of teaching contexts across the globe, and from teachers who identify as being native and non-native speakers of English. All chapters are research and evidence-based, and explicit in the methodologies employed, making the volume attractive to both student and practising teachers wanting to engage in their own research projects.'
