It is excellent! Thomas StPeter, Chicago She saw a change in her pupils behaviour, even the problematic ones. After purchasing and using this book, I saw a big difference in my group of 6 year olds. We played our new games I truly saw a a change in their behaviour. They participated and were very excited, even the boys that I had problems with. Now at every lesson they ask: What new game are we going to play today? Sylvia Karagiannis, Athens, Greece She earned the respect of her pupils. Last time when I was playing one of your games I heard one my pupils say to another: This is the best teacher in our school. Before I used your games, my pupils didn't like my courses, but now, when I get into the classroom they greet me with a nice smile, and when we have break , they come to see me and talk to me with what I taught them. Naima Chraa, Morocco This teacher is now excited about teaching English. Brilliant!!! It is amazing how many games you can use in just one lesson. I can't believe I am actually excited about starting with the new unit. To be honest I am extremely happy with these ideas. I haven't stopped recieving compliments on my teaching in the last week.... Fº Javier Marín Millán, Spain This teacher created a closer bond with her students! In my country, cause of the culture, teachers and learners often have a very long distance with each other. I realised that English games using in my lecture make our relationship become closer and better, and I am very pleased for that. Phuong Thuy, Hanoi, Vietnam She feels more confident and enjoys the planning now. I really am so glad I found your stuff...it has completely changed the way I feel about teaching now. Before it was something I had always stressed over, the planning, that is, although I am both Celta and PGCE qualified I still found myself very stressed until every lesson was planned, which could take for ever. Since discovering your materials I sit down to enjoy the planning & love the teaching. Joanna Simm, France
