My Review:   When I read the title of this book in my TEFL and teaching abroad research I knew it wasn’t quite what I was looking for but I was curious in regards to the idea of teaching English.  I LOVE this guide in fact I am pretty sure this is one of the books I will buy when I am ready to pack up my stuff and move abroad to teach English.     The book let’s you know this is especially effective in Asia, because it is a visual education but the games and practice and can be worked into any curriculum.

Fantastic book that I will buy the physical copy of once I am ready to go (I utilized my Kindle Unlimited membership during my research)
