4.0 out of 5 starseffective, quick ideas
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2020
Perfect for busy teachers or those who just need a little spark of inspiration for their next lesson.I recommend this for ESL teachers, especially those in high-school or adult settings. The games and activities are practical, easy to incorporate, and seem effective. I plan to use at least 5 of the ideas this semester in my advanced adult class. A helpful (and only 99 cents on Kindle!) purchase. I'm looking forward to checking out more of the author's books and ideas.
A great resource for helping you create a genuinely student- centered classroom in which students do 70 to 90% of the talking. Unlike some teacher manuals, this book contains realistic activities that can be tailored to any level. The author not only has impeccable academic credentials and impressive first-hand experience, but also conveys great sensitivity toward the struggles of ESOL learners. I will immediately be using some of these ideas in my classes.
3.0 out of 5 starsOkay, some ideas. I mainly ordered to see what the author was up to.

Not too much that I could use, but, when you read someone else's work, sometimes, you get inspiration that you might have had, had you not been grousing about how what you were reading was not giving you what you need. I think the author might have a different kind of student than the ones I am working with, where they don't really want to be in class, but they are getting a deal on a student visa (as nearly as I can tell)..

This is an easy to read excellent book for busy teachers who need ideas and clear instructions about how to get your class talking in English. I will certainly use this book in my many different teaching contexts. Thanks Jackie for your resourceful book. I will warmly recommend it to fellow teachers and colleagues in the field.
I found this text to be a great resource. It's short, simple and to the point. The activities/games have been tested by the author. I needed fresh ideas for my Adult ESL 1 class at my local community college. I'll be checking out her other books, too.

I've only glanced through this book so far, which is actually quite difficult because there are NO PAGE NUMBERS printed on the pages. There are some excellent sections and ideas, but they are hard to find! It's rather frustrating. The table of contents is off too - if you have the patience to count the pages towards the spot you're looking for. Ooopsies?

This is a collection of good ideas for using with ESL students, but not that many new ideas. It is, however, a handy reference if you are just getting started working with ESL students and need some ideas.
