Default Good Investment ? -"Teacher Training DVD Series"

Hi ESLHQ!

I'm planning on buying "Teacher Training DVD Series"

by International House London (IHL). But I'm still uncertain.



I had bought "How to teach English" by Jeremy Harmer

and its DVD Recording of Teachers and students in different

class situations (i.e. Giving Instructions, Reading a text, Games

etc.) boosted our teacher's training.



The DVD Recording made our teachers pick up teaching skills

and techniques faster than any training material that we had

ever used.



So I am convinced that using DVD Training Videos are one of

the best way to train teachers.



In IHLs Website, Jeremy Harmer himself recommended

the DVD Training Series.



The Price is the only challenge.

It costs 75 Pounds/ 140 American Dollars per DVD.

(excluding packing and sending)

The entire set is 15 DVDs. (750 Pounds/ 1,400 Dollars)


I have 2 Questions:


(1) Do you think this is a good investment?


I wish to hear what other ESL Professionals think about these

Training Videos, especially those who have used it.


(2) How good is the reputation of IHL?

This is the first time that I have heard of them.

International House London is a Language School/Teacher's

Training Institute. They are a member of EQUALs. I especially want to

know their reputation in the UK's ESL Industry.



Thank you so much.

You advice can help me decide.
