Default Re: Good Investment ? -"Teacher Training DVD Series"

My suggestion would be to keep in mind you need a competent teacher to actually explain the material.

You can't make new teachers watch the videos and expect them to learn. It was my understanding it is to be used by a teacher to train new teachers, not as a self-study resource.

Most of the video is watching the teacher in the lesson, and then it is followed by an interview with Harmer. There is little explanation of the teaching skills.

Or am I getting the DVDs confused? Well the ones I watched with the Harmer interviews and the IH London teachers were not for self-study.

And the videos aren't that good anyways.
