  1. Hi Aaron;

    I have worked as both a French as second language teacher and an English literacy teacher/tutor. I understand the importance of good and easy-to-use resources. Your review of English Vocabulary in Use: Elementary by Michael McCarthy shows it to be one such resource for English as second language teachers.

    I’ve been thinking about going into this field myself now that I’m retired, and I will bookmark your review to add to my list of potential resources.

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Stella 🙂 

  2. Hello Aaron, though I am not a native speaker and neither do I strain any degree in the English language, by communicating with people and through self practise, I have been able to work my way up the ladder of success in it. However, I would like to know more and reading vocabulary books would really come in handy. I like this book you have highlighted here. Thanks and it surely sound be a worthy ride
