An A-Z of ELT by Scott Thornbury

Bought it for the CELTA/DELTA. Now: Use if for Everything

I bought An A-Z of ELTwhen I was doing the CELTA and DELTA courses and found it invaluable. There are entries for essentially all English as a second language, or English as a foreign language terms. Some random examples are: connected speech, deductive learning, dogme ELT, pairwork, and reflective teaching.

Why I Love an A-Z of ELT

The entries are short, concise and give you the basic details you need to know without all the extra stuff. It’s the perfect entry into a topic before you start digging further because it can give you a framework from which to work and it’s helpful for finding out who the big names are in that area. Plus, it’s HIGHLY quotable for any kind of research paper, or blog entry that you’re doing.

It really should be in every ESL teacher’s personal library.
