Does it provide as much information as an MA in TESOL? Of course not. Is it slightly dated? Yes. Does it cover as many teaching techniques as classic work like Techniques in Teaching Writing (Teaching Techniques in English as a Second Language)? No.
But it's a fair, persuasive pitch for a fast-growing profession and almost pitch-perfect for young American, British, and Canadian graduates looking for their first teaching job abroad. This thin book also deserves to be on the short list of books for English Language Trainers and short-term TESOL certificate programs.
