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

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

From the very beginning of the book, Hammer clearly ***** the principles behind his course of study. He states in a straight forward and sensible manner on the major ********** ***** ********** covered by ***** course's multi-layered syllabus. However, even if at first site the ***** seems daunting, in reality it follows a quite traditional approach as to sequencing. ***** point of this section is because Hammer realizes that ***** teachers will not use the book cover ***** cover but instead will pick and choose various materials and tasks. This opening statement lets the teacher know how this can be done by clearly outlining the organization ***** contents of the book. For ***** reason, it is clear that Hammer is an advocate of a le*****rner based approach to ***** the English language and thus encourages the teacher ***** use ***** book in a manner ***** best meets the learning needs of his or her students.

Using a ***** ***** is a skill. It involves ********** *****t ***** material on t***** page and deciding if, when and how to use that material. It may be, for example, that a particular exercise, activity or even, in some situations, a whole ***** is not quite appropriate ***** your class.
