Evaluation of Book

***** Hammer's book entitled The Practice ***** English Language Teaching is an excellent course ***** that can be used in the teaching of ***** Engl*****h language. Unlike many books in the field, Hammer's book is written to be used by both ***** language learner and, more importantly, the ***** teacher. Thus, it serves as a guide ***** how to use its contents ***** lesson pl*****ns in the most effective way. To accomplish this, ***** book clearly outlines its objectives, is written in a clear and easy to underst***** style, its chapters are well organized, and it provides the language teacher with adequate explanations ***** guidance.

This book is best used for the beginning English ***** development teacher as that is who Hammer wrote the ***** for. Any English language ***** with considerable experience will most likely not find ***** text useful and should instead look at Mr. Hammer's intermediate level book, Just Right. More so, this text is not aimed only at the ***** English ***** teacher, but also those who are currently in the process of studying ***** become an English language teacher. *****, this book is highly recommended to be used in ***** course ***** studying the methods of teaching ***** English language and as a resource or guide for the first years of teaching.

From ***** very beginning of the *****, Hammer clearly outlines ***** principles behind his course of study. He states in a straight forward and sensible manner on the major aspects ***** *****pics covered by the course's multi-layered syllabus. However, even if at first site the syllabus seems daunt*****g, in reality it follows a quite traditional approach as to sequencing. The point ***** this section is because Hammer realizes ***** ***** teachers will ***** use the book cover ***** cover but instead ***** pick and choose various m*****erials ***** tasks. This opening statement lets the teacher know how this ***** be done by clearly outlining the organization and contents of the book. For ***** reason, it is clear that Hammer ***** an advocate of a learner based approach to teaching ***** English ***** and thus encourages the teacher ***** use ***** book in a manner ***** ***** meets the learn*****g needs of his or her students. In o*****r words, instead of arguing for the course book to dictate the flow ***** the learning process, hammer *****s for letting the teac***** react and go with ***** students and general direction of the classroom.

***** ***** Hammer, as he states in his book Just Right:

Using a course ***** is a skill. It involves ********** *****t t***** material on the page and deciding if, when and how to use that material. It may be, for example, that a particular exercise, activity or *****, in some situati*****s, a *****le ***** is not quite appropriate for your class. ***** such circumstances you may decide to either omit that ***** or, if you have something better up your sleeve, replace it with ***** own activities."
