GRAMMAR SLAMMER Now Available

All right, here it is. My book about how to explain all the annoying grammar points that frequently come up in TEFL classes. 

Get it here for the Amazon Kindle -- FREE for the next five days. 

The blurb:

English Teacher X is back again, to apply his numerous years of hard-won experience (as well as his vicious cynicism and disturbed sense of humor) to one of the thorniest topics in the world of Teaching English as a Foreign Language:

GRAMMAR.

Grammar rules are of small help in learning to use a foreign language, but they are of great use in quieting anxious or know-it-all students who constantly challenge the teacher, as well as impressing bosses and managers and succeeding in job interviews for TEFL positions.

English Teacher X provides a thorough look at some of the most common grammar points which come up in TEFL classes, and gives clear and detailed explanations of them, in addition to dialogues explicitly showing how to present and practice the information in class.

Topics examined include:

PARTS OF SPEECH AND TERMINOLOGY

VERB TENSES

COMMONLY CONFUSED WORDS AND EXPRESSIONS

THINGS STUDENTS WILL TRY TO TEST YOU WITH

HOW TO PRACTICE ALL THIS STUFF

and many more.

WARNING! The book is filled with heaping helpings of English Teacher X's usual sarcasm, obscene language, and crude humor, as well as his notoriously nihilistic outlook on the profession of TEFL. Please don't buy it if that kind of thing offends you.


So do me a favor and drop me an e-mail if you see any particularly egregious typos or formatting errors, and of course if there's some bit of irritating grammar business I neglected to include.

Enjoy! And if you're not careful you just might learn something before it's done.

Speaking of which, any idea when it will be ready?

Hmm, well, I can say I almost have it finished in my head. It really depends how busy we get at work next month. I'd say it should be available in 3-6 more months.

Any other electronic copies available or will it only be through Kindle?

English Teacher X said...

Having read the book prior, I though it was great. I recently finished my own TESOL certification, and the book could have been used as the textbook. It's well worth reading.

This book is full of the most disgraceful sample sentences since The Pocket Companion of Nazi Obscenities by A Hitler. It has given new meaning to my career as a failing English teacher. I congratulate you on your achievement.
