The first story led to some deep discussions about the universe with my ESL students. I am intrigued by the concept the story puts forth. I wasn't a huge fan of the second story, but two of my students said they really enjoyed it. This audiobook definitely added some creativity to my ESL lessons.
This is a personal favorite for me, as it always comes in handy with new students. Most English learners in the intermediate level do not know half of these idioms and phrasal verbs. The audio helps guide our lessons. I pause the audio to explain further. Very, very useful for English tutors.
I love the endings to both of these stories. They were easy enough for my ESL students to understand, but entertaining enough to not bore me to death during the lessons. I like to pause the multiple choice questions before the answers are spoken to let me students think.
