I read this once as I was madly writing a paper for my Cambridge DELTA course, and read it again this weekend as I anticipate redesigning my Speaking Skills courses this school year. Although it is not a seminal work on teaching speaking, it is an excellent overview of key concepts in the field, as well a great source for ideas to help teachers put these concepts into action. It is also compact, so even a busy teacher can use it, or even read it cover to cover, easily. Great job, Scott!

Incredibly useful and clear. Would have liked a few more practice activities at the end though.

I learnt that a speaking lesson is about fluency, not accuracy.
