Silliman, Anna; Tom, Abigail
This book reviews materials for teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to adult students. By looking through hundreds of texts, by consulting ESL colleagues, and by pooling teaching experience and knowledge of the field, resources were selected that are believed to be successful with adult ESL learners and useful for teachers and tutors. Over 260 titles are reviewed and both summarized and personal evaluations are offered. Topics covered include the following: methods and techniques; coursebooks; literacy; teaching activities; speaking and listening; reading; writing; grammar; dictionaries and vocabulary; English for specific purposes; culture and community life; multimedia resources; and publishers and distributors. A glossary entitled "A Shopper's Guide to Jargon" and an extensive index are included. (KFT)
