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 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
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.
