    This has to be one of the best resources I’ve found for teacher wannabees like me. It’s got practical guidance and doesn’t use the jargon I saw on my TEFL courses and in other books.

    Elizabeth Sale, Paris, France

    What struck me most about Lucy Pollard’s Guide to Teaching English was its no-nonsense approach and practicality. Though I’ve been teaching for over five years now I learned a lot from it. In fact my lessons have never been the same since! I can recommend Lucy’s ebook to teachers and trainee teachers alike.
