From the Introduction: This manual is intended to be a survival guide for newly assigned teachers who have had little or no pre-service training in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and who do not have access to such training prior to being assigned. It is not intended to replace pre-service or in-service training and those who use it should avail themselves of such training as soon as possible. Although it is not intended primarily for the trained teacher, it contains many ideas and suggestions that the experienced teacher may find helpful. The manual is designed as a self-instructional guide to be used prior to and during the initial stages of learning to teach. It is intended that a large part of the orientation will occur as a natural part of actually preparing and teaching ESL lessons to your class. If you follow the guide carefully, you will develop the fundamental skills of conducting ESL as you teach. The manual contains a set of beginning lessons and intermediate level lessons that can be used for the first twenty to thirty hours of instruction in your ESL class. These lessons form the basis for the teacher training part of this manual. They are accompanied by detailed instructions that will help to orient you and train you in using the basic techniques for teaching ESL.
