The second study was actually an experimental investigation of the cloze technique as a test of ESL proficiency which incidentally yielded interesting data in support of dictation.

I'm going to be starting out as a brand new ESL teacher and I have to say that this book is a great review since my TEFL training was about 6 months back. I need help with grammar and it gives a bit of an outline in what I should be expecting as well as what some of the students will/may be asking me about. Some people complained about grammar mistakes in the first chapter but I actually skipped over this chapter as it was the least necessary chapter for me. I must say I am better off for having bought this book and I'm thanking myself for it. If you're already teaching ESL then it may be of no use to you, but if you are a true beginner and you need a refresher then this is a great buy.

Not a very well-written guide to anyone who might be a novice wishing to help, through church or a volunteer organization, teach ESL. It may be geared more for one experienced in the art of teaching, just not teaching ESL. I found it unhelpful and never used it after reading the first chapter.

I especially like chapters 10 and 18, which explain in detail how to
teach academic writing. Great references and recommended
readings... Perfect for self-guided learning, tutors, and teachers.

Great book, great service. Thanks!

This book has been a life line for me as a TESOL teacher. It covers almost everything you need to be a TESOL teacher. Awesome book!!

As far as teaching English as a second language, it was useless. It's a why do it, not a how.

Evidently written to help novice ESL teachers understand the diverse and challenging skill sets required to teach English overseas, this ambitious book provides a plethora of practical tips for success in the classroom.

The 21 chapters range from overseas preparations, classroom management, and language needs and placement tests to verb tenses, teaching vocabulary, and teaching vowels. An informal, friendly tone pervades - and more than a few odd sentences and editing errors have survived in this 359-page tome. Each chapter includes concise subheadings, clear examples, and many needlessly long sentences. Numerous teaching suggestions, strong statements, and bullet point lists help transmit an impressive amount of information.

From my perspective as an experienced ESL instructor who has taught academic ESL for over a decade, this book remains a hidden gem. Two very strong chapters alone - Teaching Writing (chapter 10) and Teaching Speaking (chapter 17) - make this a smart choice. Both cover the predictable ground, include worksheets, and offer innovative assignments to motivate students.

I haven't read the entire book, but I'm impressed with the depth and range of concepts in the chapters I have read. Further, the resource lists allow one to conduct further research. The book attempts to convey academic research in an accessible, practical manner. Overall, it succeeds in providing a single teaching resource for English teachers wanting to help their students master a difficult language.

Two other final comments. I recognize how the book might have benefited from an university press editor, but the book would also have been far thinner, more academic, less engaging - and far less practical for ESL teachers working overseas. "Highway to ESL" succeeds far better in explaining the field and guiding teachers through a complicated maze of information than most professional titles.

For instances, "Highway to ESL" compares quite favorably to the disappointing, almost unreadable "Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching" published by Cambridge University Press. Why? A non-specialist can actually enjoy reading the book, learn some effective techniques, gain a big picture understanding of the field, and zoom in on actual classroom practices that work. As an experienced English instructor, I also learned from this under-rated book.You might too.

I strongly recommend this book for teachers entering the field, students considering teaching abroad, and experienced teachers looking for new ideas.
There are few books out there on how to teach ESL. A bought a few of them a few years ago as I wanted to supplement my income by giving some courses to the numerous immigrants living in the Montreal area. Unfortunatelly, these books were all too academic and were not very comprehensive nor user-friendly. Being a non-native English speaker I needed a book filled with tips, example lesson plans and that was simple and no non-sense. A friend of mine told me to look at this 'Highway to ESL' book. It is by far the closest thing I could find to what I was looking for. In 350 pages it covers the basics and more. I now have a lot of tools and exercises I can use when I have to prepare a class on a short notice. There is a lot of information on the logistic side too: classroom management, lesson planing etc. Not the book for those looking for highly academic prose but if you are looking for a complete tool box all-in-one, this book is worth a try. Recommended for those going to teach overseas.
