The Language Teacher Toolkit is designed with both practising and trainee (pre-service) teachers in mind and uniquely bridges the gap between research and classroom practice. It is a comprehensive and clearly written handbook, particularly useful for teachers of modern foreign languages (world languages) who work in high schools (secondary education). Written by two highly-experienced teachers with an interest in research and theory, it offers a reflective approach along with many practical classroom activities which can immediately be applied in daily teaching. The book closes with sample lessons for French, German and Spanish. Chapters include: - methods - classroom oral techniques - teaching in the target language - developing spontaneous talk - teaching grammar and vocabulary - listening, reading and writing - subject knowledge - using song, drama and games - assessment - using pictures - teaching advanced level students - technology - behaviour and motivation - evaluating and writing resources - translation - lesson planning - example lesson plans The busy languages teacher can quickly find ideas for enhancing practice, while insightful consideration of research helps create a basis for personal development in the field.
