If it was possible, this book should have 50 stars! The lessons are very clearly explained in minute detail, what to prepare and how to develop the lessons as the pupils improve their English. This is a really really fun way to teach English, my students here in Sweden love anything I take from the book.

This is a well-written book for ESL teachers (especially beginning ones), I like the activities, the index it includes to make them more search-friendly and on the whole it has proven quite useful as additional research on ESL activities. However, to be honest, I believe it's a bit outdated, contained too many activities I already knew and when I was buying it I expected to receive more ready-made original printable activities. That's partly due to the book's not having a preview on amazon, so probably it was also a search error on my part. All in all I am satisfied with my purchase because for it's price it was really worth acquiring another ideas box. In this profession there are never enough, I am afraid. :)
