How to... series

The englishdroid “How to...” series is a great collection of straightforward, user-friendly, machine-washable teacher development books.

Edited by Jeremy Hamster, each title is written by a celebrated ELT bore and offers a range of practical teaching ideas within a clear, theoretical framework.

For years Martin Lemming has been walking into class without a clue about who or what he is going to teach. And, what is more, he has got away with it.

Whether it is the IAWAFL Conference or a school workshop, Stephen Gerbil’s tips will keep you going on and on.
