5.0 out of 5 stars Great ESL book
A great book that combines grammar and vocabulary in practical day-to-day applications. Very effective with my class of recent immigrants. I think Side-by-side Plus better than the regular Side-by-Sice and worth the extra money because it contains more practical applications (like filling out a driver's license application or reading medicine bottles)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so impressed...
I read wonderful reviews of this resource, but I have found it to be too overwhelming. Students have desired something in simpler form and I would agree that first-time speakers don't need to be overwhelmed by too much information and visual stimuli when they are trying to learn the language. Having them rely on speech rather than written word was our goal. Sorry!

This review is from: Side by Side Plus 1: Life Skills, Standards, & Test Prep (3rd Edition) (Paperback)
An excellent book as an aid for teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), at the lowest level. It has basics that can be referred to time and again. Extra help can be got from the companion book Word by Word Picture Dictionary.

This review is from: Side by Side Plus 1: Life Skills, Standards, & Test Prep (3rd Edition) (Paperback)
This is one of the best ESL books that I have ever found and I NEEDED to get a copy of it. In addition to the easy to understand dialogues, this book has a CD that I'm really anxious to crack into. I will be using this book with my students for years to come!

Stimulates conversation and helps the student see the different possibilities for conversational English. Photos make the translation easier for students to relate to English translations.

This book is fabulous--especially for Adult learners. There are practical sections of reading labels at the drugstore, for example and other practical exercises that help students learn English they can use everyday.
