Best thing since sliced bread!

Rating: 4 out of 5
This is a complete guide for ESL and ELT teachers from all around the world. You need a little knowledge on using and surfing the web, but if you don't have that knowledge, this book gives you the possibility of a quick tutorial on how to browse the net. It was really useful for me as a Teacher of English and Language Consulant in another counrty than the U.S. (Chile)

A must for any English teacher!
Dave Sperling's The Internet Guide for English Language Teachers (Prentice Hall Regents) is a veritable gem, and like any gem what it lacks in its less than formidable size (150 pages) it makes up for in its reference value. Indeed, you might consider the book an essential Internet guide for English language teachers taking their first plunge into cyberspace. Experienced users will also find much in the book to recommend it. Dave a Net veteran, well-known for his excellent ESL Café, has whipped up a feast that covers the entire range of Internet services from using e-mail and communicating on the Net through to making your first Web page. Even getting ESL jobs. His many pages of favourite sites comprises a compelling treasure map that blazes a trail for the ESL practitioner eager to use the Internet to achieve best practice and successful outcomes for students. The book lists numerous sites to visit for research purposes, classroom material, interactive learning activities, games, student projects and much more. He even visits Australia to provide some local flavour. It's a very user-friendly book that touches on everything from emoticons to MOOS. Sperling cuts through the technobabble and dishes out, in very digestible servings, what many readers have always wanted to know but were too afraid to ask. Such readers are pointed to helpful sites on the Net that continue this process of demystification. At the end of the book is a useful glossary for all beginners. The Australian price for The Internet Guide for English Language Teachers is $24.95. I recommend that ESL centres and teachers considering venturing onto the Net, and those who want to reach in deeper, dig into their budgets and buy a copy. Get it while it's hot and steamy with the latest information.
