Pilgrims Course Outline

Pilgrims Booklist 2004-2005

Rather than the description of a course, this September, we would like to offer you a handy list of the books written by Pilgrims-connected teachers since the 1970's. The list includes titles that are in-print, out of print and forthcoming.

Pilgrims was founded in 1974 by James Dixey. Since then, Pilgrims-connected teachers have written a large number of Teacher Resource Books some of which have become classics. Some of the other published material by Pilgrims-connected authors is also included. Nearly fifty writers.

The list below is by author.

# :thus sign indicates that you need to search for this title via Amazon or other web book outlets, as the publishers are no longer reprinting it. Amazon can often find "out-of-print" books for you at the click of a mouse.
Alternatively, have a look in a good EFL library.
