Lots of Westerners are moving to China to teach English in colleges and universities and most of them teach a class called Oral English. But they usually receive little or no guidance on how exactly to teach that course. One of the mistakes they make (and we ourselves made at first) is to think of Oral English as a class to be "taught" instead of a skill to be "coached." In fact, Oral English teachers are much more like P.E. teachers than we think a traditional English teacher should be. This book contains tips and guidance we've acquired in a cumulative total of almost two decades of teaching Oral English in China. Our hope is that it will help you and your students enjoy Oral English as much as we have. Worksheets, downloads, and additional teacher-training materials are available at: http: //
