I love this book very easy to follow and use. Ive used face2face for several years , but find this format the best yet. The worksheets are user friendly for the studetns too. I use the activites via a smart board and find it an easy way to make the lessons interactive. I can highly recommend this book for first time teachers of ESOL.
