My purpose is voluntary tutoring of a woman knowing no English who has recently arrived from Africa with the papers for permanent US residence. I am a retired economics professor with a long-standing interest in learning languages by myself but no experience in teaching any. Some of the other books I bought from Amazon are useful for my purpose, but not this one.
I found some of the book's confident British-isms offputting; can't think of an example right off, but much of the English that she tells you how to teach is, well, rather English. :-)
Additionally, I found the book to be poorly edited and full of typos here and there which distracted me from the quality of its core message. I realize it's not "Copy Editing for Dummies," but I think the publisher could have put a few more hours' effort in and come away with a higher-quality book overall.
Still, that doesn't stop me from heartily recommending this simple, approachable book, yet another wonderful entry in the perennially-favourite Dummies series.
