jeremy-harmer.jpgApologies to Jeremy Harmer for not posting this earlier! A couple of weeks ago, Jeremy received the 2nd British Council Award for English Language Teaching (ELT) Writing for his book "Essential Teacher Knowledge - Core Concepts in English Language Teaching" (Pearson).

The Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy presented the £2,000 award, which celebrates an outstanding contribution to the field, at the Society of Authors’ awards party at the Army and Navy Club in London on Thursday 13th June.

Anna Searle, Director English Language at the British Council, said the award, "was introduced to celebrate authors who turn their talents to educational writing - specifically writing which benefits more widespread and better quality teaching and learning of English worldwide." She added, "we hope that millions of new readers will discover works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry in the English language - along with a genuine love of reading."

The British Council Award was judged by Jan Bell, Desmond O’Sullivan and last year’s joint winner, Catherine Walter. They described the winner as: "A magisterial work of real importance and authority, without doubt it is the ELT Book of the Year."
