Sarah Davies, Senior Lecturer, Nottingham Trent University

'This book guides you through a process of looking at your own teaching and properly building in some of the many new techniques it outlines. This book does not provide a magic wand, it instead provides a mirror onto one's own practice and allows you to make real, lasting improvements in the classroom'

'This book will provide ideas that motivate that most difficult of audiences, the teenager. It works well because it is broken down into quick ideas that can easily be built on to existing plans'
The Teacher

'This book's authors are both experienced classroom teachers with impressive CVs, immediately instilling faith that they will know what they are talking about and that they are giving advice and ideas about things they have actually done'
-Debbie Redshaw

Although evidently written for use by teachers in L1 secondary schools, there is much here that could apply just as well in TESOL settings and which would be useful for new and prospective teachers to learn about. -- Teacher Trainer
