We have asked top ELT authors the following 3 questions:
- What’s your favourite ELT book?
- What or who has had the biggest impact on ELT in the last 25 years?
- What do you wish you’d known when you started out in ELT?
Here, David Baker answers these questions in a short interview:
David is co-author with Michael Swan of Grammar Scan (OUP, 2008), and commissioned and edited the third edition of Swan’s Practical English Usage.
What do you think of David’s answers? How far are ELT course books rooted in practical teaching experience? David mentions Michael Swan as his inspiration – has he inspired you too, or has someone else? To what extent do you think technology aids teaching? Why not share your thoughts here.
