What people are saying about The Ultimate ESL Manual on the Amazon sites.

‘What a great book! Andromeda's knowledge and experience shines through. She gets straight to the point, gives very clear grammar explanations and loads of practical help’ Sheila Longden.

‘This is a one-stop shop for preparing powerful classes that throws out the need for costly and confusing text books. Priceless!’ Amazon Customer.

‘Great book, saved me hours of prep! Each grammar point comes with its own speaking activity so you won't run out of ideas about what to teach your students,’ TeacherA24.

The Ultimate Teaching ESL Manual is a complete English teaching system designed so that any native speaker (with TEFL experience or not) can pick up the book and start teaching.

With this book you will have the power to:
o Start teaching English online or in the classroom now with a step-by-step guide on how to teach every grammar point in the English language.
o Teach vocabulary with over 60 lexical sets covering beginner, intermediate, advanced to super-advanced levels.
o Keep your students engaged with follow-on activities for every lesson including role plays, games and problem solving activities.
o Cut down on preparation time with lesson plans for all language points.
o Add interest to your classes with an appendix full of illustrated worksheets which manual owners can download in high resolution from the book’s website.
o Travel light and save money on expensive textbooks with everything you need to teach English in one book.
o Provide students with fantastic lessons they want with a methodology focused on language learning through speaking practice.

The Manual teaches a methodology whereby students learn through speaking activities (rather than traditional textbooks) mimicking how we learnt our native language as children but in a condensed form.

Early in my career I was fortunate to work for an academy that had freed their classes from textbooks, projectors or other unnecessary equipment. Instead teachers taught grammar and vocabulary through oral drills and speaking exercises.

Students make rapid progress with the constant speaking practice and lessons are more creative for the teacher as they have the freedom to decide what they want to teach and how.

Classes are simple, effective and take less time to prepare as there are no handouts to worry about, exercises to mark or any of the other work that comes with traditional ESL teaching.

The Manual includes lesson plans, drills and speaking activities for every grammar point as well as methodology, games, vocabulary sets and a whole host of other stuff to make your classes special.
