    Re: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia

    I've got $43.57 now- they must be using different suppliers. Book prices are not fixed in the UK, so different shops can charge different prices.

    I used the Book Depository once, it was fine. It's probably changing because the web's got different suppliers. Depending on who's selling the books or how old they are, the price would vary.

    I see. That explains what is going on. It, also, explains the numerous titles they have!

    MASM, was your order with free delivery to Spain? How long did it take to reach you?

    Some people complain that some of the books weren't in a good condition, how was your book?

    Re: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia

    Well I ordered it when I was in the UK, I'm not sure if I could have ordered it from Spain anyway, because I've tried to do so, but they wouldn't let me anymore..

    I don't remember well, but I think the book arrived in two days and it was fine, I didn't have any problem. I ordered things from Amazon that arrived just fine too.

    I've checked the book you said, here is 31.89 euros and apparently is free shipping worldwide within 24 hours

    Re: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia

    I ordered it and within 24 hours it was dispatched by Royal Mail, but I wouldn't expect it to reach me in less than 7-10 days with free worldwide shipping.

    This free service to many countries around the world has made them stand out from their rivals!

    Re: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia

    The book is delivered in the best condition you want it to be. However, I feel bad about the quality of printing, the font seems to have been written in smaller size then enlarged. I don't know if the low price 43$ has to do with this or not, but if it does then I'm not a winner here

    Maybe sometime I'll check another version and compare between the two!

    Re: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia

    I teach a TESOL program where this text is on the reading list. To my thinking, it is not very readable and provides little or no inspiration to people who want to become teachers.

    This is one of a long list of texts attempting to cash in on the growing TESOL market. Its orientation is far too academic and the overall editing doesn't categorise material usefully.

    Probably too late to be of any help this time, but for the future try abebooks. I have got a lot of stuff from them (both .co.uk and .com). Their service is good, and their prices are fantastic. Your Celce-Murcia was being offered today at $4 (yes, four). True, it's second-hand but at that price you don't mind a blot on a page.
