TEACHING ENGLISH ACROSS CULTURES is a comprehensive introduction to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). It breaks free from the fixation of basing methods on restrictions of one kind or another and makes use of all the learning and teaching strategies available to the teacher without arbitrary restrictions such as using actions only, or not speaking for X number of hours, or not explaining things, or not seeing the written language for weeks. In simple, nontechnical language, it develops the practical implication of Learning, Assimilation, and Facility (LAF) that operates in all first and second language learning, regardless of method.
