Best books for further TEFL development

What are the best books for further TEFL development?

We often get asked by our TEFL trainees which TEFL books they should read in order to improve their teaching or further their understanding of grammar and Use of English.

Here are two of our favourite references:

“700 Classroom Activities”: Ideal for group teaching and last-minute lesson planning. This is a great source of inspiration for basing lessons around particular vocabulary or grammar points.

“Practical English Usage” by Mickael Swan: This is great for native speakers of English and proficient non-native users of English (Advanced or Proficient learners of English). This book is great to develop your confidence as a teacher of EFL.

I attended a workshop across two weekends on teaching business, young learners and exam preparation which were equally as well-planned and engaging. I’m sad it’s over!

This is a great course (…) In particular, Julia offers impeccable support throughout the whole process and dedicates a lot of time to her interns!

I really enjoyed the blend of online training with teaching in Madrid, giving me a chance to implement what I had learnt. The reflective diaries were also really helpful to delve deeper into the theory behind teaching.
