"This book would make a highly pragmatic and useful contribution to every teacher's toolbox of activities." - Paulina Melichova, English Teaching Professional
"This book is in tune with what many educators are concerned about, namely the need for creativity in education,which applies also to language teaching. The book offers a wealth of practical ideas for productive skills - speaking and writing, book based activities and activities for young learners. Highly recommended." - Hania Kryszewska, Humanising Language Teaching
"Most English language teachers will already be familiar with the 'canon' of titles providing ideas for classroom activities...Erasmus and Houston have produced a work that ought to sit comfortably with the best of these tried-and-tested resources. Creative Output is highly recommended, but don't leave it on the shelf next to your other activities and ideas books. Open it up, dip into it and use it." - David Curtin, English Australia Journal
"This book of just over 130 pages starts with a clear and concise theoretical underpinning and follows up with abroad variety of activities which deal with speaking and writing in the ESL classroom. All in all, this resource book should provide a very welcome addition to any staffroom where busy teachers might need a spark of inspiration, a new idea or complete activities." - Steve Hirschhorn, EFL Magazine
"All the activities are well explained, indicating what preparation and materials are needed. The instructions are clearly staged, with many helpful notes about how to get the best out of the activity and your students. One of the great aspects of many of the suggested activities is that they require very few materials other than,for example, a video clip, some pieces of paper or a few everyday objects. This is a book I feel sure will be of equal use to both new and experienced teachers looking for fun, imaginative ways to enliven their classes." - Gillian Fearn, TESOL Spain newsletter
"This practical paperback is convenient to carry around and can be used by novice and experienced teachers alike. The activities can be implemented for a range of age groups and language level abilities. If you are looking for some fresh ideas that can help you make your output tasks more creative, fun, and interactive then this practical little paperback is worth adding to your toolkit." - Patricia Daniels, ETAS Journal

"Looking for student output that goes beyond the straightforward discussion task or composition writing? Look no further. Houston and Erasmus think outside the box and bring loads of new creative ideas to the language classroom."
Lindsay Clandfield, author of Teaching Online (Delta), Moral Dilemmas (the round) and Interaction Online (CUP)
