TEFL recommended books??

Unread postby tommy » 03 Jan 2008, 08:45

Hi.

Can anyone recommend any useful books that would be beneficial to read before attending a TEFL course. I am currently in India on the way to Thailand to persue a course and as you may imagine they have all sorts of wierd and wonderful books available, but I am stuck as to which author or title would make the best reading?

Many thanks in advance.

Thank you Tommy for posting this question. And thank you Neville for posting this response. I just ordered the first two books on the list for my self-study. I was browsing the entire internet yesterday looking for a couple of appropriate books to start my own study before I commit to a specific course. R. Murphy's and M. Swan's books came up to the top of my list -- but I wasn't sure if I was missing other great resources. Alas, I was. I didn't see J. Harmer's contributions. So I ordered Practice of English Language Teaching and English Grammar Use. Granted, I got Harmer's book for $2 plus shipping as it is the 1991 ed. I figure what the hay? It's gotta have good stuff. I can get the 2007 w/ the DVD later....

So, thank you for helping me take my next step!
