1.0 out of 5 starsWaste of Money
Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2015
Did not see anything new or exciting in here. The same old ideas that can be found in any basic TEFL course were copied here. Waste of money. Nothing in here you can't find with a simple Google search.
5.0 out of 5 starsAn excellent grab bag of short lesson ideas

Lesley Ito has many years of experience teaching children in Japan, and it shows. Although the activities in this book are simple on the surface, they are well explained and cover a wide range of lesson types. Some take an existing game like Simon Says or Memory and give it a twist, others focus on specific phrases or vocabulary items like the months of the year. Teachers who approach this kind of book looking for that one specific lesson they need for tomorrow will no doubt be disappointed; however, insightful teachers will find many ideas here which can and should be adapted to their own situation. Besides, at $0.99, it's less than 2 cents per idea. Can't beat that!

I am not a teacher, my experience in teaching a foreign language is close to null, but i wanted to use my fluent english for an early start with my boy. I managed to find some great pieces of advice that i currently use on a daily basis.
