Dixon has compiled a great list of engaging classroom activities to teach all Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking to all levels of learners in all contexts.The writing is clear and easy to follow for any teacher, and it can be used for self-study or as part of a teacher training class. I used this as the textbook in a recent ESL Methods training course for teachers from Peru with outstanding results. A must-buy if you’re interested in teaching English or training English teachers. — Vincent Lauter, Amazon reviewer

I used this book in a teacher training program and the teachers in the course loved the activities in this book! They took the activities and easily incorporated them into demo lessons to present to the class. This book is perfect for teachers who want ideas, activities, and guidance on lesson planning that they can instantly apply to their teaching contexts. Would definitely recommend this book! — Elizabeth M., Amazon reviewer
