Books for teachers

Here are some recommended ESL books for teachers:

  1. How To Teach English (with DVD) A popular and practical book for English as a Second Language teachers. A good place to start.

  3. Activities, Games, and Assessment Strategies for the Foreign Language Classroom
  4. English Grammar In Use with Answers and CD ROM: A Self-study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English A book about teaching English grammar.

Books for students

The following are some books for your ESL classes/students. If you need to choose a book for class or you need more materials for young learners then these are what I would recommend.

  1. Let's Go 1 Student Book with CD-ROM (Let's Go Third Edition) Let's Go is a six part series with Let's Go 1 as the first book. These books suit ages from about 5-13 years old. There is also a workbook and a teachers book available.
  2. English Time 1: Student Book Similar to the above.

If your school doesn't have books then you could buy one book and then make photocopies to hand out to your students.
