Look no further than Jeremy Harmer's, 'The Practice of English Language Teaching'.
Arrived within two weeks of purchase (Over Christmas period), in terrific condition.
The text itself is very thorougher and Jeremy has a knack for explaining thoughts and concepts relevant to someone considering the teaching (Tesol/Tefl/Esl etc) field. Though I've only begun my TESOL certificate, I feel this text will help enormously, as this completely revised edition has the added bonus of discussion on such subjects as:
learner autonomy &
context-sensitive learning & teaching methodologies
There is a wealth of up-to-date material any up-and-coming ESL teacher, or teacher in training, will find valuable as they complete their studies.
Admitedly I have not yet started teaching so I have not yet been able try it out.
It glosses over much of the important background required to actually understand and implement the
information used, it is a very superficial description of the information presented.
If you really are interested:
Second Language Learning Theories by Mitchell and Myles
is a great book with thoroughly explains the information and gives you a real insight into the various ways of teaching a second language,
it can be painfully dry sometimes, but unlike The Practice of Teaching English, it contains all of the relevant information.
