5.0 out of 5 stars excellent ESOL resource, 30 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ESOL Activities Entry 3: Practical Language Activities for Living in the UK and Ireland (Cambridge for ESOL) (Paperback)
A colleague of mine had the ESOL Activities Entry 2 and I was inspired to try the Entry 3, as this is the level I am currently teaching. There are three sections to each unit (there are 16 units) with a different skills focus for each: Speaking & Listening, Reading and Writing. The book comes with a CD with all the Listening tracks (so no need to buy anything more than this book !) The units cover grammar and skills and touch on all the ESOL topics as well as including a fair amount of Citizenship. So far I have used the book as a resource for some of my lessons but I think it could easily be used for planning a whole course. I think it is a fantastic resource for ESOL. A lot of the other coursebooks are aimed at EFL students and do not cover all the topics adequately and are not as inclusive of all the typical ESOL students. Excellent value in my opinion (given the cost of buying student/teacher books and CDs etc with the usual resources). Each section includes teachers notes and transcripts, curriculum refs, answers (!) and advice for extension activities and further practice. Some lessons require a little more than photocopying the page but advice is given and most can be achieved fairly simply with a bit of forward planning (eg: the extension activity could be photocopying the transcript and tippexing out key words and making a gap-fill so stronger students could listen for the missing words). Very well cross referenced to Skills for Life and Citizenship materials
