From the Author:
I wrote What Should Every EFL Teacher Know? because I had recently read several other similar books and drafts
and found that a lot of what I thought was important was not included in them. I have also recently retired,
although the work does not seem to have got less, and I felt that after many years of teaching I should be able to
tell a language teacher what are the most important things to do. Although the book is strongly based on
research, it is not written as an academic text but as a how-to-do-it text. When I finished writing the EFL book, I
went to a conference for ESL teachers in New Zealand and realized that I needed to say somewhat different things
to them than I would say to EFL teachers. So, I wrote an accompanying ESL book, What Should Every ESL Teacher
Know? When I started writing the ESL book I thought I could just copy over a lot of the chapters from the EFL book,
but to my surprise, they turned out to be very different books. Writing the books turned out to be a good example
of how we can learn through writing. I learned a lot by writing the books. Compass Publishing very generously
agreed to make the ESL book available free in electronic form, and I am very grateful for this.
