Product Description

One of the most painful aspects of any TEFL job (except of course for the low salaries, terrible prospects, and awful hours) is getting the students to speak.

Far too many teachers exhaust themselves trying to entertain and motivate and gently coax English out of surly, exhausted, or shy students - but yet again English Teacher X, with more than 15 years experience at some of the worst language schools in the world, is here to help.

Here is a book full of clear, succint, and superbly effective ways to give your students virtually NO CHOICE but to produce HUGE AMOUNTS of English in a variety of classroom situations, all presented with English Teacher X's usual cynical irreverence.

Among the issues dealt with in this book are:

-how to increase the amount of speaking in grammar / listening / reading activities, and how to maximize speaking in your classes in general

- how to prepare for individual students who don't want to use a book

- more than 50 short grammar- and topic-based speaking activities that can be done with little or no preparation from the teacher

- how to approach "conversation classes" and how to create lists of questions that will ENSURE that neither you nor the students run out of things to say

and much more!.

From large classes to individuals, from beginners to advanced classes, English Teacher X provides you with a comprehensive set of activities, strategies and tricks to help you deal with even the most uncommunicative and recalcitrant of students.

WARNING! This book contains rude language, crude humor, and a generally bad attitude
