ELT Teacher Development Website
[Pearson Longman (914) 287-8160, Post-Secondary]
Pearson Longman's Teacher Development Interactive (for English Language Teachers - ELT, although better-known as ESL) is such a valuable resource, we found ourselves wondering why more teacher development courseware and programs aren't available which are affordable, convenient, and well-designed.
Created in conjunction with Hunter University and utilizing the talents of renowned specialist, Dr. Jack C. Richards, Teacher Development Interactive covers every aspect of ELT in two distinct modules, Listening and Speaking. Using state-of-the-art videos of lectures, explanations, lesson design, exercises - in fact, all of the five domains of learning - it helps teachers master the art of teaching speaking, listening, reading, writing, fluency, and more to their ESL students. This course is so good, it could replace certification courses at colleges and universities - and maybe it should. Winner of a 2009 BESSIE ELT Teacher Development Website award, congratulations to Pearson Longman!
