Abstract:

Essentials For Successful English Language Teaching is about how we teach
English Language Learners (ELLs) and how our ELLs learn.

Farrell and Jacobs encourage those involved in teaching English to develop,
maintain and rediscover the reasons that led them to take up the
profession. They focus on the essentials in teaching the English language
that teachers can implement in their instruction so that their students can
excel in their learning:

* Encourage learner autonomy
* Emphasize the social nature of learning
* Develop curricular integration, focus on meaning
* Celebrate diversity
* Expand thinking skills
* Utilize alternative assessment, and
* Promote English language teachers as co-learners along with their
students.

These essentials are best implemented as a whole, rather than one at a time
and so they are interwoven with each other to encourage a holistic teaching
approach. Highly accessible, each chapter comes with case studies and a
range of activities to encourage the reader to put each of the essentials
into practice. With these the authors aim to bring an inner smile to all
English language teachers that reassures them they made the right choice
when they chose to become teachers of the English language.
This reflective and engaging book will be invaluable to postgraduate
students of TESOL and applied linguistics, and in-service language teachers.

"Written in a clear and easy-to-understand language, the book provides a
great source of inspirations for language practitioners who wish to develop
their professionalism and become more learner- and learning-centred in
their teaching. A must read for every 21st-century language teacher!!"
