TEFL 101: Principles, Approaches, Methods & Techniques is the culmination of my work maintaining education standards in schools throughout China. It is a comprehensive catalogue of my knowledge, wit and wisdom related to the industry..I had the idea to write this book shortly after I became teacher trainer and found myself trying to train and manage more than 300 people. This was both a daunting and exciting prospect and I felt that an efficient means would be to write a short missive about good practice related to my experience. This idea stemmed from regularly visiting schools and getting frustrated with seeing people doing what I felt was frankly, a poor job in front of students who had paid good money to be there. I knew that I could set a better standard if I outlined some fairly simple tricks of the trade and effective methods of communication..And so began the weekly practice of knocking out a one-page piece of advice. I write in a style that hopefully, newly hired teachers and laymen can appreciate. I believe that a good teacher should delight in taking fairly complex concepts and breaking them down so that anyone can understand. I truly believe in Wittgenstein's words that 'anything that can be said, can be said clearly' and so in a way I was also reacting against the teaching books I had seen over the years which talked in very abstract, convoluted and jargon-heavy ways. They always seemed so staid and detached from the real world of TEFL teaching..TEFL 101 is published by Cambridge Academic and contains 101 mini-chapters. The beauty of this format is that I think you can cover almost every aspect of the field in some way. I was also inspired by great works of literature and great figures of history and have tried to write in a way that tips my hat to them and their sagacity. Great thinkers have helped me as a teacher and I believe they can direct our understanding in a profound way.About the Author :
