English for the Teacher is a course which enables teachers to improve their language ability for a number of purposes - using English in the classroom, making professional contacts, reading about the teaching of English and discussions with colleagues and students. As well as providing language practice for the four skills, it also invites teachers to comment on the learning value of what they are doing and thus discuss and reflect on different ways of teaching and learning. In this way, it provides opportunities for more general professional development. * A short Introduction for users explains the basic principles underlying the material. * Each unit focuses on a theme from the world of teaching. * Notes for Trainers give guidance on appropriate classroom methodology. * Guidance is provided for self-study use.

Editorial Reviews

'Mary Spratt has produced what promises to be a useful and motivating book. Course members will need their own copies to take advantage of all the visual material. The content and mode of presentation are refreshingly different. The book is full of inspiration.' VATME Newsletter No 56, 1995 'English for the Teacher proved to be a highly valuable, effective, and enjoyable working tool ... this is a book which I can recommend to all those who are preparing for the CEELT, whether individually or in a teacher-led group.' ELT Journal, Vol 50, No 2, 1996 '... this book is worth having in your library to 'dip into' for yourself regarding issues of relevance for teaching, for trainees, both non-native and native and as a general resource for authentic reading and listening material for advance students. The area on "Student Language" itself is excellent and would justify buying this book. It would certainly spark lively debate as it is a totally practical section and very helpful in the day to day running of the class.' NATEFL Newsletter, 1995
