Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this book with my intermediate level ESL students. They like it, and I love it. The book consists of paragraphs which the students have to copy, but they have to change something for each exercise -- for example, they have to make the story about a woman instead of a man, or about two people instead of one person. Sometimes they must change the story from the present to the past or future. These exercises really expose what the students know (or don't know) about verbs, pronouns, and articles and are great practice. They can be assigned as homework.

Format: Paperback
This is an update of a classic controlled composition text. In any form, the basic teaching philosophy is sound and workable. This text is useful to all levels of ESL students, especially those who believe they are proficient writers! This text is an industry standard and should be on any ESL teacher's shelf. The exercises require precision in writing and slowly train the students to watch out for indentation, correct punctuation, capitalization, subject-verb agreement and the like. I use this text in my classes every day and recommend that all teachers of ESL writing and grammar do the same.

I have used both 10 Steps and 26 Steps in my ESL classrooms. My students have universally growled about them, and yet on exit interviews, said that these books taught them more English than any other books we used. I've also used these books with junior and senior high native-English speakers. Same reactions, and same results. They groan because it's *hard,* but they enjoy the final results. Rather like complaining about "leg day" at the gym. Dreaded and loathed, but secretly loved.
