5.0 out of 5 stars You too can draw like an artist. 28 April 2006
By Andy
I literally cannot draw a thing, yet with this book, I can draw like an artist.

This book is split into categories, with associated pictures. Covers everything from facial expressions, food, items, verbs, nouns, health & welfare, house & home, behaviour, special effects etc.

All pictures are bold and in black and white, which also allows for the opportunity to trace them as well.

These are simple pictures to copy, but with very effective results.

Since buying this book, numerous others have seen it and gone on to buy it also.

In my opinion, it is the best book of its kind on the market.

2.0 out of 5 stars EAL teacher in school 1 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find all Andrew Wright's books on EAL teaching inspirational and instantly applicable to teaching so thought this book would prove another practical aid. I am looking for a solution to the frequent problem that arises when trying to communicate a grammar point to non-English speakers with a wobbly grasp of the concept of grammar! I hoped it would provide instant photocopiable visuals. It is exactly what it claims to be. A book that teaches you how to draw and create your own visuals. Some of the drawings are packed with detail and compliment many teaching activities suggested by Penny Ur and Andrew Wright, but do not lend themselves to the rapid sketching often resorted to when trying to communicate in the classroom. I have owned it for over 2 months and not really used it yet, despite the occasional search.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple techniques, quick results! 16 Jun 2000
By Darryl Nightingale - Published on
This is not "Art"! The ideas and materials in this book are not designed to develop your students artistic vision!
The pictures and techniques in this book are designed, rather, to be quick and effective ways to define words and phrases, illustrate dialogue, provide settings and context, motivate students, and provide references to which the learner can make a personal response.
The book begins with a clear and concise section on basic techniques. You will learn, quickly and painlessly, how to draw stickpeople and boxpeople, types of facial expression, caricatures, animals and objects, scenes, and special effects.
The bulk opf the book follows, consisting of more than a thousand pictures to copy, based on the Council of Europe "Threshold Level" and the "Cambridge English Lexicon". Included are pictures of settings (eg restaurant), personal identification (eg professions), topics and notions (eg health), vocabulary and grammar, and pictures for composition (speculative pictures and story sequences).
This is followed by a brief but useful section outlining some basic ways of using pictures in listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities.
The book is rounded off with a complete alphabetical index to the illustrated words.
If you teach ESL or need to communicate visually for some other reason, and you think you can't draw, find youself drawing elaborate, time-consuming pictures, or your drawing efforts often result in mass blank looks of incomprehension, this book is for you. If you are looking for a book which will turn you into an artist, it isn't.
The best book I've seen of it's type in nearly five years of full-time ESL teaching. Highly recommended if you fall within it's intended target audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended for Wold Language Teachers! 20 Aug 2005
By Donna Quijote - Published on
I am a high school Spanish Teacher and tutor also. I came across this little gem of a book by accident.The pictures are clear and simple and they cover a variety of word categories (food, clothing, etc.) The pictures copy beautifully and are great for inserting into quizzes and tests for the visual learner. The story sequences are great and encourage students to talk without any written text in front of them. This is "TPR"

(Total Physical Response) before it was even officially labeled..

I have colleagues who use it for French and Italian too.

A complete artistic klutz, my classroom and handouts for my students have improved greatly since I discovered this great book. For language teachers and anyone who wants to learn some basic artwork, this book is a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Stars! 31 Dec 2001
By Dickens - Published on
This a veritable Bible for ESL/EFL teachers. Wright crams this excellent book with ideas that will help bring out the creative teacher and get everyone away from the often tedious textbook. The book is easy to use and can be browsed casually or worked through more systematically. I recommend the latter approach and suggest that ideas and activities can be used in all aspects of classroom work. A definite top 3 ELT books contender!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible book!!! 3 Oct 1998
By - Published on
If you teach ESL, this book is essential. It puts every verb, noun, preposition, etc. in pictoral form, easy to draw and photocopy. It is good for upper levels all the way to special education. A special education professor at Columbia University told me she loved this book and would definitely use it.
