Through clever body language and vocal inflection, this book encourages new and current teachers of English to produce inspiring lessons that will engage their pupils. What messages are you sending to your class? 55 per cent of communication occurs through our body language, 38 per cent from the tone, speed and inflection of our voice and a mere 7 per cent from what we're actually saying! "Inspired English Teaching" will help you to use your voice, facial expressions and movement to assert your authority in the classroom, make the boring bits that you have to do fun and get great results from your students. This book also contains 20 ready-to-use lesson plans that will excite, intrigue and entertain your Secondary English class.
