Teaching English as a Foreign or Second Language, Third Edition

A Teacher Self-Development and Methodology Guide
Third Edition
Jerry G. Gebhard


Like previous editions, the third edition is an ideal teacher development text for pre-service and in-service EFL/ESL teachers, as well as a guide for those who find themselves teaching English overseas but who do not have a master's in TESOL.

This edition has the same three major sections: (1) Self-Development, Exploration, and Settings; (2) Principles of EFL/ESL Teaching; and (3) Teaching Language Skills. New to this edition are:
  • a chapter on digital literacy, technology, and teaching
  • the addition of technology issues as they relate to the teaching of the various skills in Part 3
  • discussions of task-based teaching, student presentations, how corpus linguistics can inform teaching, metacognitive reading strategies, collaborative writing, assessing writing, and the teaching of grammar.
The lists of recommended resources that appear at the end of each chapter have been updated, and all research and pedagogical practices have been revised and updated.
