Paul Nation's and Jonathan Newton's book Teaching ESL/EFL Listening and Speaking is an excellent resource. The book is especially helpful in how a teacher could organize her course objectives. It is also helpful with providing various activities for ESL/EFL learners. Nation and Newton also provide suggestions for certain levels of vocabulary that should be emphasized at different levels of language proficiency. Thumbs up.

While not the most user-friendly text, there is much helpful information and effective strategies for teaching the two underrated aspects of learning English, listening and speaking.

Do yourself a favor and skip chapter 1 altogether. If the author wanted to get the attention of readers with an engaging beginning, he failed miserably. Start instead with chapter 2, entitled "Beginning to Listen and Speak in Another Language." Believe me, you will save yourself a big headache in doing this!
