In this article we’re going to review the very popular kids ESL textbook “Let’s Go” published by Oxford University Press. The “Let’s Go” series has over seven textbooks that cover the ages from 3 to around 12 years old. To call the “Let’s Go” series a textbook would be mistake, it is more a suite of Kids ESL resources that are based around the textbook/student book. There is a teacher’s guide, workbook, CD, student cards, full-size teacher cards, wall charts, readers, songbooks, picture dictionary, grammar and listening textbook and finally an interactive CD-ROM. That is quite a lot. In this review we’re going to take a look at the student book, workbook, teacher’s guide and CD. We will go over the other material at a later time in a different review.
In today’s article we’re going to go over the series of kids picture books published by Apricot. Picture books are an essential tool for any English teacher that has young children’s classes. They are great way to introduce new vocabulary, phrases and basic questions. They are also a great way to calm down an overexcited or chaotic class. Simply said you need a good series of picture books.
