TweetYou’ve taught with a coursebook, haven’t you? How did that go for you? Did you enjoy using it? Did your learners like it? Do you think that it met their needs? While I’d be surprised if many of you said ‘no’ to the first question, I’m sure your responses to the others will be more mixed and probably less positive on the whole.
Now, I’ve asked you to do quite a bit of reading on my blog recently, so I thought I’d give you a break and make a video post. This video clip explains my thoughts on course books in general, and I make my position clear through the use of what I consider to be a perfect analogy.
I’d really like your thoughts on this issue, so please don’t be shy in commenting on this post, OK?
