English as A Second Language text books, workbooks and learning tools.

An Exceptional, Practical Book

This outstanding resource, designed for our 21st century English language learners and ESL teachers, fills a critical gap. Providing practical exercises that explain 94 confusing idioms that fill news articles from the BBC, VOA, and CNN, this text helps Japanese ESL students become better news customers, critical readers, and world citizens. As an English teacher who works with international students develop their writing skills, I found these exercises exceptional.

Concise, Clear, and Practical

Raymond Murphy's "Grammar in Use" series (Cambridge University Press) provides concise exercises, clear examples, a simple format, and a systematic approach to learning English grammar. It's almost ideal for self-study since each lesson (unit) can stand alone and unit answers can be easily found and understood.

Turns TOEIC Preparation into a satisfying exploration of our 21st century business culture!

Designed to help end the tyranny of standardized tests while preparing international students to dramatically improve their TOEIC scores, this multi-skill textbook provides compelling readings and practical tips. The authors introduce each chapter with illuminating photographs to provoke discussion. The listening statements describing each picture also exposes students to a wider range of realistic descriptions. This segment stands out compared to the usual "drill and kill" TOEIC test preparation books.

A fine grammar book, but not a conversation book!

This textbook remains a fine grammar book with focused, grammar based exercises. Smaller and cheaper than the Azar books, people looking for drills to improve "look-see-do" speaking exercises should be satisfied.

Witty, Concise, and Clear Grammar Guide

What do you want in a grammar book, anyway? Under the Grammar Hammer provides clear, concise, and even witty examples of the 25 most common grammar mistakes. Designed for college students and adults seeking practical guidance on grammar rules, this thin and affordable books is almost ideal for intermediate and advanced ESL classes. Forget buying thick, expensive, and often incomprehensible grammar tomes like the Azar series. This book provides vivid examples, short descriptions, and realistic rules that work in the vast, vast majority of writing situations.
