Looking at Language Classrooms is a video teacher development package. It presents a range of authentic language classrooms recorded on location - not in studios - showing classes carrying out their normal activities with their regular teachers. There are four video cassettes in the package, each containing around 60 minutes of material. Each cassette consists of one complete lesson (shortened slightly in editing), and one or more extracts from other lessons. Full print support material is included, with photocopiable worksheets to be used with each sequence, trainer's notes, and transcripts of the lessons.
