Format: Paperback
This is not "Art"! The ideas and materials in this book are not designed to develop your students artistic vision!
The pictures and techniques in this book are designed, rather, to be quick and effective ways to define words and phrases, illustrate dialogue, provide settings and context, motivate students, and provide references to which the learner can make a personal response.
The book begins with a clear and concise section on basic techniques. You will learn, quickly and painlessly, how to draw stickpeople and boxpeople, types of facial expression, caricatures, animals and objects, scenes, and special effects.
The bulk opf the book follows, consisting of more than a thousand pictures to copy, based on the Council of Europe "Threshold Level" and the "Cambridge English Lexicon". Included are pictures of settings (eg restaurant), personal identification (eg professions), topics and notions (eg health), vocabulary and grammar, and pictures for composition (speculative pictures and story sequences).
This is followed by a brief but useful section outlining some basic ways of using pictures in listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities.
The book is rounded off with a complete alphabetical index to the illustrated words.
If you teach ESL or need to communicate visually for some other reason, and you think you can't draw, find youself drawing elaborate, time-consuming pictures, or your drawing efforts often result in mass blank looks of incomprehension, this book is for you. If you are looking for a book which will turn you into an artist, it isn't.
The best book I've seen of it's type in nearly five years of full-time ESL teaching. Highly recommended if you fall within it's intended target audience.

I am a high school Spanish Teacher and tutor also. I came across this little gem of a book by accident.The pictures are clear and simple and they cover a variety of word categories (food, clothing, etc.) The pictures copy beautifully and are great for inserting into quizzes and tests for the visual learner. The story sequences are great and encourage students to talk without any written text in front of them. This is "TPR"

(Total Physical Response) before it was even officially labeled..

I have colleagues who use it for French and Italian too.

A complete artistic klutz, my classroom and handouts for my students have improved greatly since I discovered this great book. For language teachers and anyone who wants to learn some basic artwork, this book is a must-have.

Format: Paperback
This a veritable Bible for ESL/EFL teachers. Wright crams this excellent book with ideas that will help bring out the creative teacher and get everyone away from the often tedious textbook. The book is easy to use and can be browsed casually or worked through more systematically. I recommend the latter approach and suggest that ideas and activities can be used in all aspects of classroom work. A definite top 3 ELT books contender!
