    5-0 out of 5 stars Longmann Course for TOEFL
    An excellent book to pass TOEFL. Use the CD and pay attention to all the exercises and you will not have any problem in taking real TOEFL test.

    1-0 out of 5 stars don't buy it
    It's a waste of money and time. You can only use the reading section of the book.When you get the book , for example, for listening part you just have questions ,but you don't have the cd for the conversations. To use the other sections you need another audio series which are NOT in the market. Also the audio series you need is NOT mentioned buy the publisher. They give a cd with the book but it doesn't match with the book, it's totally different. I tied to contact with the publisher but they didn't answer my e-mail, they don't seem responsible. As a result, if you don't want to waste your money don't buy this book.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This Book Needs A Warning Label
    Although the Longman iBT TOEFL preparation book is generally well done, its main feature is one of the most deceptive sales practices I have ever seen in a textbook.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything I needed for the CTEL
    This text admirably addresses the CTEL exam.Pop for the third edition; it's worth it.And if it were up to me, this book's sections on immigration law, history, and diversity would be required reading for any educator.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource Book
    I purchased this book for a college class and it was mostly review from other classes. However, I found the book easy to read and very informative.This single book covered about 4 or 5 other books from different courses.If you are a beginning teacher that wants to be able to teach to all of your students, than this book is a must.This great book covers SDAIE teaching and just other great concepts.If you have never taken a multilinguial course than this is money well spent.If you have had a number of those types of classes, than I would look for a book more catered to what you need.This is book is a great introductory book.Most students that I had in class kept the book as reference material and that says a lot because we use book money to live on until finicial aide comes in, LOL. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I am really amazed of how much idioms and colloquial expressions you can learn just by listening to the CD. And guess what - these are idioms and phrases you REALLY hear everyday on the street, usedby most people in everyday situations. Before, my English sounded a bit "artificial" and somehow forced. Now, the more I used the idioms I learnt here, the more natural and even friendly I sound to the native speakers.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Useful Book
    This is a good book to read, esp. for non-native English speaker. I learn many new expressions with ease (because the book provides proper context). The reason I give 4, instead of 5, is that there are (too) many repetitions throughout the book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A simple yet clever way to break into the "idiom barrier"
    Remember your good old Englishtextbook which started with an introduction of the characters who would be in the dialogs throughout the units? That's how this book is laid out. Idioms are contextualized and there are various consolidation exercises between units to reinforce them. The accompanying CD is very clear and the voices convey the moods of the characters - although I must say that the man who does Bob's voice sounds incredibly boring at times as his voicedoesn't seem to show much pitch variation. Some of the idioms are alreadyknown to most high-intermediate students, but there are many others to learn, so it can certainly satisfy those studentswho resent not having enough "real-life"vocabulary in class. It may alsobe useful for the student working on his own, once the explanations are very clear. In a nutshell: It's worth buying if you're looking for a simple - yet effective - way to explore the most common idioms of American English. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good, Easy Reading Book for Teachers Who Want to Learn More About English Language Learners
    I thought this book was very good for classroom teachers who want clear information on how to include English Language Learners in their classrooms.It is very difficult to explain to classroom teachers how to include students who are learning English in short sound bites.This book helps clarify information and teachers can read it at their leisure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good for review your general grammar knowledge
    I'M A SPANISH SPEAKER THAT WAS SEEKING FOR A BOOK THAT BEGINS ABOVE THE BEGINNERS LEVEL. THIS BOOK BEGINS WITH MORE COMPLEXGRAMMAR.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Self-Study Book
    This is a great book for those who have exposed themselves in English speaking environment for quite a while and have got a basic English grammar knowledge,but always get confused by some "casual" grammar problems or something out of the expectations that you have learned from those"regular" grammar rules. In a word, this book rather focuson those "irregular"English grammar phenomenon that usedby those native speakers in their everyday life.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for practicing.
    Once you will have it, you only need to read and to practice. Very explicit book, and great for the people how understand the English but doesn't knows the rules. Also I recommend to buy an idiom book. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars CLAD Text
    A well written text essential for acquiring CLAD credentialing. Myths are perpetuated which greatly reduces the credibility - there is only one "race", humans or Homo sapiens. Very few of us were born or came from the Caucasus Mountains of eastern Europe, yet 17th century artificial constructs of "race" and "Caucasian" are used. There is no discussion of how skin pigmentation is an ecotype adaptation, not a "race." Science, Scientific American, Discovery and other peer-reviewed journals have corrected "race" misconceptions repeatedly - yet the authors, with education backgrounds, appear to have not completed a review of current literature.5-0 out of 5 stars Golden resource
    I almost felt like I was cheating on the CLAD test. This handbook was a wonderful resource and the only one I used to pass the test .... the FIRST time!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Preparing to take the CLAD test.
    Chapters 1 & 2 seemed very dry but I'm not big on theory. The remaining chapters were much more interesting. I highly recommend reading it before taking the CLAD test. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I take exception for its usefulness for EVERY teaching situation...
    This book has been of limited usefullness for me. I've found only a few activities in here that would be practical for my classes of 40 Korean middle schoolers, but I also believe I'm in a bit of an unusual situation trying to teach English to such big classes. That being said, I did find it useful for, if nothing else, getting my own ideas rolling. I would also like to add that it's rather pricey for a flimsy little book, but I'm sure that if my situation were different it would have been well worth the money. I can pretty much recommend it to everyone EXCEPT those with unusually large class sizes, but it would be good for them too if they could find it used. Otherwise there are good resources to be found online for free.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Activity Resource Book
    This book contains many quick activities that require little preparation.It's a good tool for use in the EFL classroom.Many of the activities seem geared for middle school and up, though they can be easily adapted for elementary students.This book would be quicker to use if the activities were marked as appropriate for beginner, intermediate and advanced at the beginning of the description.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    This is an excellent tool for beginners and advanced teachers alike.This book helps you find ways to teach English, and while you are using it you will develop your own unique ways of changing their material to fit your needs. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love "Side by Side"
    I was from China and started my life in the USA as a graduate student in Engineering.Although I took the TOEFL before I came to USA, my English is not good enough to express myself clearly and accurately. I decided to improve my English about 4 months ago and started to borrow some ESL books from local libraries.
    5-0 out of 5 stars SIde By Side Book 3
    My wife and I have been using Side By Side since living in Japan as ESL teachers 1987-89.We used the first edition way back then.My wife still is active tutoring English to Japanese in our area of the USA and this is an excellent series for English learners.We would recommend it to anyone from any culture.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A conversational supplement
    This is an amazing series of books for any age beginners of Oral English as a Second Language (American English). I taught this series in China for 3 years, and am currently an M.Ed student. This series not only allows an inexperienced teacher to be able to jump into any class and feel confident teaching, but offers a strong order to the subject matter that is taught. The vocabulary and grammatical forms that are introduced are very useful in daily life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for ELL in Elementary
    I found this book had great strategies to apply in an elementary setting for all my students.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practical
    I think this book has many practical ideas, not just for ELLs, but for teaching in traditional classrooms as well.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Idealistic
    I agree that Herrell focuses on practice as well as theory. As a teacher in a high school with a large ELL population (I have from 12-18 kids in each class; large by ESL standards), I sometimes found her suggestions laughable. Although I became a teacher knowing that it is not, no matter what anyone says, an 8-4 job, I find it fascinating that she believes I have the time to keep organized folders and journals tracking the daily success of each student when public education demands so much mindless, useless paperwork and other duties that makes it a miracle that I can even finish grading and designing lesson plans at all. I believe Heller has some beautiful, albeit idealistic ideas, but she often seems to forget about the difficulties in classroom management and "school business" that prevents many wonderful ideas from taking place. I guess what I really mean is that I was hoping for suggestions on how to balance the "corporate" part of public education with effective, motivating strategies. Also, maybe high school is different. I think a lot of these strategies may work better with younger kiddoes, who are often much more motivated to learn.

    2-0 out of 5 stars too many mistakes
    This pocket guide has several APA Style mistakes. The example paper is the most misleading.The text says one thing and the example shows another. e.g. putting the short title on the figure page.My students were very frustrated with it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No examples of aggregated databases
    I realize a "pocket guide" cannot cover everything, but the lack of examples for aggregated databases such as libraries provide is a glaring omission. These databases (e.g., EBSCO, InfoTrac) are very important for college and university research today, and I can't understand why they were omitted. Otherwise, I love this book. I hope the author will correct this omission in the next edition.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Quite useful.
    This book was very useful in writing college papers in APA format. Since it is a pocket guide it doesn't have everything in it but I found it very useful and helpful. I would highly recommend this book. ... Read more

    "Keep Talking" contains over one hundred differentfluency-building activities for the language teacher to use eitherdirectly, or with modification, in her language classroom. Each activityhas a well defined purpose, whether it be functional or structural, and iscategorized according to language level, skill and student arrangement,stating clearly whether or not preparation is necessary, and how long thetasks typically take. The procedural instructions are lucid and relativelyeasy to convey to most groups of language learners, and there is also scopefor variation for many of these language games, along with helpful commentson how make such activities fun and achievable. If one also includes theimportance of making notes, and obtaining feedback, which Kippel suggestsin the introduction, then it is clear just how useful this book is.Although I was at first confused as to why the author grouped his languagelearning activities under themes such as jigsaw task, interview, or storytelling, rather than according to function or structure, I think his pointis to focus on fluency and engendering a communicative atmosphere, ratherthan to actually teach anything or practice something too specific. Theteacher's role, therefore, appears to be as a facilitator or classroommanager. In any case, the indexes include language structure (but notfunction) and level, making navigating relatively straight-forward."Keep Talking" also contains about sixty worksheets which can becopied for use in class. Although I no longer use them in my teachingsituation, I borrow ideas from them all the time. This book is not suitablefor formal institutions, but otherwise, whether you are new to languageteaching, or a seasoned pro, I feel fairly confident that there issomething in this book for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An ESL Teacher's Best Friend
    As an ESL teacher in China for the past 12 years, I have found this book a great help and, at times, a life-saver."Keep Talking" is one of the best sources of English language games and activities for the ESLclassroom.Logically arranged and with clear instructions on how to use,lanaguage level, time needed and aim of the activity, this book is a mustfor all ESL teachers, but especially for those teaching for a year or twooverseas without strong formal ESL training.You won't be disappointed. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars My ESL thinks it's great!
    I used this with a group of adult students from West Africa.They were the ones who decided to purchase the book out of their own pockets because they found it so helpful.They speak French and very little English.I do not speak French.The book was quite valuable.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great
    This is great for English language learners. It's organized by sections and is easy to understand. The only drawback is it's ehtnocentric towards the USA and this wouldnt be good for english learners living in Britain.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Helpful Resource
    This book is packed full of useful grammar activities.They are easily classified according to grammar point and can be easily searched for use.I've used the activities numerous times, and there are a lot of great ideas in this book.The only thing that isn't so great is that the pictures have a late 70's or early 80's look, but it's not such a big problem since you can easily get pictures out of magazines or other such resources.Also, the English featured here is British English, so if you're teaching American English, you have to adjust some of the phrases or vocabulary.Other than that, it's great.Check it out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Your ESL Library!
    I borrowed a copy from my ESL instructor while student-teaching. It is FANTASTIC. I have found that the activities proposed in the book can also be modified to fit another activity -- or to even get my own creativejuices flowing. There have been times when I felt overwhelmed by all thegood examples and couldn't pick just one. It's easy to carry and pack --don't leave home without it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most valuable ESL resources I have seen.
    Imaginative, interesting, engaging and well organized this book is one ofthe most valuable resources I have seen in nearly three years of full timeESL teaching.The book is divided into two parts.Part One provides a clearand concise introduction to grammar teaching in the foreign languageclassroom, a very useful guide to designing and presenting grammar-practiceactivities and some tips for getting the most out of coursebook exercises. The heart of the book, however, is Part Two which consists of nearly 200game-like grammar practice activities. The activities are grouped intosections according to grammatical categories. The categories are orderedalphabetically and cross-referenced in the text. The descriptions of theactivities are accompanied, where appropriate, by reproducable sample textsand visuals.The activities are not classified by proficiency level or ageand the author encourages teachers to adapt them to suit their ownstudents. I have found that most of the activities are readily adaptable todifferent levels, and although most as presented in the book seemorientated toward adult students I have successfully adapted many for usewith teenagers and younger children. Likewise the activities are notclassified by skill practiced as many are designed or can be adapted topractise any or all of the four skills.This book is also exceptional inthat it doesn't fall foul of that ill which inexplicably plagues manysimilar books - a cumbersome and unwieldy index. The index in this book,although perhaps not quite as complete as it could be, is among the verybest I have seen in this type of publication. A single alphabetical listidentifies activities by term, topic and title. In addition there is aclear list of contents at the front of the book.The book's easy-to-useformat, comprehensive coverage, sturdy paperback construction and handysize make it an indispensable addition to any ESL teacher's tool-kit. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helped sooth my nerves about being a first-time ESL teacher
    Although there wasn't much directly useful to my situation (Public middle school in Korea. I have classes of nearly 40 students and see each class once per week), the book helped me get an idea of what my role was going to be and what I needed to do in order to prepare. I have even been able to adapt a few of the activity ideas into my monster-sized classes. Personally, I would like to see a longer discussion about having large class sizes, and strategies for dealing with them, but obviously no one can write a book perfectly catered to everyone.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent, no nonsense book
    This book is essential reading for all English teachers.It has been great for me as I have used it daily with my TEFL course, and will be referring to it for many months I guess.I'm sure though that there are many English teachers who already feel they are experienced but would benefit from Harmer's book as "every day's a school day!"

    5-0 out of 5 stars User-Friendly Into to ESL
    This is IT! The best introductory text you can buy on the subject of teaching English as a Second Language. Seems like everybody and their brother are writing ESL books these days, so do yourself a favor and start with one by an extremely knowledgeable author. Mr. Harmer makes the basics of teaching ESL sound easy and more importantly FUN. Enjoy it... ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good work book.
    I bought this work book three years after my last Spanish course because I was going to retake Spanish and wanted to refresh my memory. Practice is definitely the best way to learn and remember a language, and this work book was sufficient and helpful. I actually enjoyed the exercises, although some are ovelry simplified. I'm not sure how good this book would be for someone without previous courses in Spanish, but it worked well for me. The explanatory sections are short and clear, and are followed by exercises pertaining to the lessons. The book builds upon previous chapters. I also tried the Barron's Spanish series, which are much thicker and somewhat clumsy. I liked both the "Practice Makes Perfect" and "Barron's" series, but I think that the former is more comprehensive and probably best for someone who is reviewing Spanish.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practice Makes Perfect Does it Again!
    As the editor of the Learning Spanish Products Reviews (LearningSpanishProductsReviews) site, one of my responsibilities is to review learning Spanish resources that are listed on Amazon. I am also a native Spanish speaker from Argentina and a professional private Spanish instructor.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Better Than Barron's
    Whether you've already used up the previous two Spanish guides in the Practice Makes Perfect Series (Spanish Verb Tenses, and Spanish Pronouns and Pronouns), or this is your introduction, this workbook is as good as it gets for the intermediate to advanced student of Spanish who wants to keep learning beyond the classroom. Complete Spanish Grammar has it all--friendly, down-to-earth language, exercises that could have been taken right out of Hispanic shops and streets and living rooms, and explanations of grammar components that actually make sense.
