As time went on I got quite skilled at keeping one lesson ahead of the class, and began to learn the rudiments of the craft — not least because of the advice and encouragement of the Principal, John Eckersley, to whom I owe a considerable debt. Also, as time went on, I found the work increasingly interesting and enjoyable, and discovered that I had a modest talent for it; none of this was true of my academic research into some justly neglected 18th-century German poets.
So after a couple of years I finally saw the light and turned into a full-time English language teacher. Three years or so working for John Eckersley were followed by a longer period during which my first wife and I ran our own small language school, the Swan School, in Oxford.
My involvement in this came to an end when we split up.
She continued running the school, very much better than I had I should never try to organise anything, ever , and I moved to Paris, where I taught English to adults and wrote my first books. Paris in the s was a very good place to be an English language teacher. The Communicative Approach was just beginning to make waves, and the place was buzzing with new ideas, many of them sensible.
Most importantly for me, the British Council's brilliant and dynamic English Language Officer, Alan Maley, organised regular seminars, open to all for a small fee, where one could spend a day or a weekend learning from the brightest stars in the ELT firmament. This helped me to fill some of the gaps in my knowledge and thinking — having drifted into the business before ELT training courses existed, I had no formal training at all.
I'm still totally unqualified. If I applied to myself for a job as a research assistant, I'd have to turn myself down.
By the end of the s, after 20 very enjoyable years teaching, I decided I'd been in classrooms for long enough: spending your working day telling people things you know and they don't is ultimately bad for the character. May show remainder marks.
Older books may show minor flaws. Very Good VG : Shows some signs of wear and is no longer fresh. Used textbooks do not come with supplemental materials. Good G : Average used book with all pages present. Possible loose bindings, highlighting, cocked spine or torn dust jackets. Fair FR : Obviously well-worn, but no text pages missing. May be without endpapers or title page. Markings do not interfere with readability.
Poor P : All text is legible but may be soiled and have binding defects. Reading copies and binding copies fall into this category. Absolutely perfect in every way.
