Level 1 Books:
Teaching Language Through Action

As an ESL/Foreign Language Teacher Trainer for the last 28 years, I have often been asked about proper materials to successfully implement the TPR and Natural Approaches. I am happy to share these with you. I hasten to let you know beforehand that every one of these books has been tested in the classroom. Either I personally have found each of these successful, or I have observed teachers using these successfully. Each of these has been proven to be outstanding. These books are user-friendly, providing activities that are full of fun, and EACH ONE WORKS!!

I have been careful to indicate the level of each work. This refers to the LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY LEVEL, NOT THE GRADE LEVEL.
