Success in teaching is largely based on qualities such as diligence, patience, and common sense. Many nonprofessionals possess these qualities in abundance. But learning the craft of language teaching by trial and error can take a long time and involve considerable emotional wear and tear on both volunteer teachers and their students. This book accelerates the process by offering a nontechnical introduction to English teaching, one geared toward the special needs of native English speaking volunteer teachers working outside their home countries.
