Review quote

'Serves its purpose admirably - can hardly be faulted. Learner English is yet another goodie for every well-equipped language school.' TEFL Farm 'This book ought to be read by all teachers of English but especially those who work with multi-lingual classes where it is a constant challenge to discover the fundamental reasons behind students' errors.' British Council Network News
