5.0 out of 5 stars A Wealth of Resources Dec 29 2013
By Juanita Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bookmarked so many places in this book. It is chocked full of real examples of how to use CALL in the classroom with sharp, glossy pictures. And, the author referenced so many websites that I have since used to help my ESL students. I love this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars It is good for those familiar with the theory Aug. 23 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are not into CALL than this is not the book for you. But if you subscribe to this method then this book is a good buy. It is a bit theoretical, but it also explains approaches and strategies that every language teacher (any level) could use. the CD is not that useful though.
