Product Description

About the Author

Marianne Celce-Murcia (Ph.D. in Linguistics, 1972) is Professor Emerita of Applied Linguistics and TESL at the University of California, Los Angeles, where for 30 years she taught primarily graduate students, preparing to be language teachers and researchers. Beyond her work at UCLA, she taught in and administered English language programs in Nigeria (1964-1966), Egypt (Fall, 1980), Canada (Summer, 1983), and Armenia (2003-2007). She has lectured and led workshops all over the U.S. and in many other countries as well. In addition to her co-authorship (with Diane Larsen-Freeman) on the three editions of "The Grammar Book," she is co-editor (with Donna Brinton and Marguerite Ann Snow) of the fourth edition of "Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language" (2014) and series co-editor (with Maggie Sokolik) of the five-volume, content-based "Grammar Connection" series (2008-2009), all with Cengage Learning, who (as Heinle & Heinle) presented her with their lifetime achievement award in 1997. At UCLA Marianne was honored for distinguished teaching both as a graduate student (1964) and as a professor (1976).

Donna M. Brinton is an educational consultant who has held academic and/or administrative positions at the University of California, Los Angeles; Soka University of America; and the University of Southern California.

Marguerite Ann Snow is professor of education at California State University, Los Angeles, where she teaches in the TESOL MA Program.

HASH(0xa50a566c) out of 5 stars A very useful resource for teachers of English as a second or foreign language. Sept. 7 2015
By John Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language is edited by Marianne Celce-Murcia, Donna M. Grinton, David Bohlke and Marguerite Ann Snow. It is the fourth edition of the book and a comprehensive guide to this subject. The book is divided into six units with the following titles:
1. Foundations of Methodology
2. Language Skills
3. Skills for teachers
4. Integrated approaches
5. Focus on the learner
6. Focus on the teacher

Each unit contains a number of articles by various authors. In all, the book provides a valuable reference volume to any teacher who wants to understand how to teach English better to those for whom English is not their native language. As a teacher of this subject myself, I find it particularly helpful in many ways.

HASH(0xa50a587c) out of 5 stars I love this book Dec 2 2014
By TA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. It's a nice read with great ideas about teaching ESL/EFL. I think it's a beneficial book for those who already have some relatable teaching experience; however, anyone could get some great tools and tips. The book is pricey. I purchased it for a course, otherwise I might not have gotten it on my own for how much it costs. Nonetheless, I did enjoy reading it.

HASH(0xa50a5840) out of 5 stars It's great to have the up-dated version of this textbook July 22 2015
By Sassy Senior - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's great to have the up-dated version of this textbook. Being an educator with an M.A. in ELL, I need to keep up with all of the most current theories and teaching strategies. I have used Celce-Murcia's text throughout my Master's program and consider it an absolute must have.
The textbook arrived as promised and the condition presented. I would use this vender again if the need arose.

PLEASE FIX THE BINDING FOR YOUR NEXT EDITION! IT FALLS APART EASILY! OTHER THAN THAT, IT HAS BEEN A GREAT HELP IN MY TESOL CLASSES!

HASH(0xa50a70a8) out of 5 stars but I was pleased to have this book in my repertoire June 1 2015
By cbubniak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a heavy but thorough read. It is also a little repetitive but well worth the cost because it leaves you with much food for thought. There are not any specific references I can conjure, but I was pleased to have this book in my repertoire.
