101 mini-chapters covering every aspect of ESL teaching.
This book is the culmination of Luan Hanratty's work maintaining education standards in schools throughout China. It is a comprehensive catalogue of his knowledge, wit and wisdom related to the industry.
A good teacher should delight in taking fairly complex concepts and breaking them down so that anyone can understand. Thus TEFL 101 is written in a style that newly-hired teachers & laymen can appreciate and as such, it is also a reaction against the many teaching books that talk in abstract, convoluted and jargon-heavy ways. Instead, TEFL 101 is straightforward and relevant to the world of language teaching.
