This is a truly splendid book! I am an experienced ESL teacher, and I wish someone had passed this book along to me when I was beginning in the field. The main areas of the book–teaching methodology, language skills, integrated approaches, focusing on the learner, and skills for teachers–are daily issues for ESL teachers. The fact that the book is an anthology is also very good, as it provides a variety of perspectives. I found the earliest entries–dealing with the history of the field–superb. Similarly, I found the sections on the different levels/situations in which ESL is taught also very useful.
