Too theoretical to be useful. . .,
This review is from: The Practice of English Language Teaching, 3rd Edition (Longman Handbooks for Language Teachers) (Paperback)Harmer was one of the two recommended texts for my CELTA English as a Second Language course. I found it heavy going, long on theory, short on practical advice for the new ESL teacher. I much prefer Scrivener, "Learning Teaching." It's hard to find in the US, but worth the effort.
