An Evening with Scott Thornbury - My ten favourite grammar lessons

Speaker: Scott Thornbury

It's been my privilege - as a teacher trainer, examiner and former director of studies to observe some really memorable classes. Let me a share a few of these with you, and let's see if we can draw up some principles for good grammar teaching.

He has taught and trained in a wide range of contexts, including the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont. He has written extensively on areas of language and methodology, his most recent books being Conversation: From Description to Pedagogy (with Diana Slade, CUP) and The CELTA Course (with Peter Watkins, CUP) . He is currently the series editor of the Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers (CUP). He divides his time between New York and Barcelona.
