It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Teaching English to the World
Subtitle: History, Curriculum, and Practice
Edited By: George Braine

"Teaching English to the World: History, Curriculum, and Practice" is a
unique collection of English language teaching (ELT) histories, curricula,
and personal narratives from non-native speaker (NNS) English teachers
around the world. No other book brings such a range of international ELT
professionals together to describe and narrate what they know best.

The book includes chapters from Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary,
India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore,
Sri Lanka, and Turkey. All chapters follow a consistent pattern, describing
first the history of English language teaching in a particular country,
then the current ELT curriculum, followed by the biography or the
autobiography of an English teacher of that country. This consistency in
the structuring of chapters will enable readers to assimilate the
information easily while also comparing and contrasting the context of ELT
in each country.
