Today, there are about four nonnative-speaking English teachers for every teacher who is a native speaker. More English teachers work in non-English-speaking settings than in English-speaking settings, and most are natives of the countries in which they teach. This volume focuses on the challenges faced by English teachers for whom Englishis a second (or even third or fourth) language. Four themes receive special emphasis: communicative language teaching, proficiency, language learning, and practicality.* Chapters 1-5 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning.* Chapters 6-13 discuss the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms.An afterword suggests paths for teachers who want to pursue further study, and appendixes offer a starter kit for course planning, samplecourse plans, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.
