I was teaching English as a Foreign Language as a supply teacher recently and was approached by another teacher. He could not prepare his lessons for the afternoon because the photocopier had broken down. Using the ideas contained in this book, I gave him several suggestions for his lessons using the same vocabulary and grammar focus that he had originally planned, but not using photocopies. He was delighted. This is just one of many incidents that have indicated a strong need for this book.

Students need no other equipment other than something to write with and something to write on. Range of material from KS3 to advanced.
