I’m really happy and excited to announce that my book, ‘Teaching grammar: from rules to reasons’ is out. Obviously I’m extremely biased, but I believe this book can be a really useful resource for practising language teachers and teachers working towards Diplomas or an MA. The section on designing your own lessons and materials should also be a useful tool for teachers who want to create their own materials, including those on pre-service courses like the CELTA. I’m currently putting some sessions together for DELTA and CELTA courses, so if anyone would like to see these please let me know and I can send them to you once I’ve piloted them in late January/February. Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested, and if you get a copy, I really hope you enjoy it.
