Great books!

These are great books to use with my adult students who have some familiarity with English and have recently moved to the U.S.

A bit tired

The idea behind this book is solid, but material definitely dated. Could use an update.

American Manners and Customs review

Our ESL tutors use this book often. To date, we have purchased at least 7 copies. It is practical and easy to incorporate into our one-on-one tutoring, conversation groups, and EL classrooms.
