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.

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 recommend Lucy’s ebook to teachers and trainee teachers alike.

Covered the full scope in a precise way. Easy to read end-to-end to get full overview. And I think it will be useful as a reference as I move forward. Lots of practical tips/ideas.

Pretty good. It taught me to teach but I was surprised it didnt’ teach me English grammar. Its important I know grammar if I got to teach it
