Introduction to the Teacher

Unit 14 on China: The Great Wall

Unit 23 on Ecuador: The Galapagos Islands

The units follow this plan:

Page 1. A color postcard and a national flag.
4 to 7 WH questions: What is this? Where is it? etc.
Page 2. A phone call with Igor, the traveler: Where are you? What are you doing?
How are you? Why are you doing that? etc.
Page 3. A reading passage describing the famous place, followed by comprehension questions and a short writing activity.
Page 4. Three short exercises on grammar, vocabulary, and listening comprehension/writing (a short dictation).
Page 5. A postcard for the learners to write and "send" to a friend, and then a short lively chant about the site.
Page 6. Discussion questions, followed by another phone call with Igor to find
out what he has done, who he has seen, and where he's going tomorrow.
And there is a website address for more information and pictures.

So, here's Igor's itinerary: New York, Paris, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Egypt, Tanzania, Jordan, Moscow, India, Nepal, Tibet, China, Japan, Cambodia, Australia, Hawaii, Easter Island, Antarctica, the Amazon, Peru, the Galapagos, the Panama Canal, Mexico, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Yellowstone, Niagara Falls, and finally Washington, D.C. Ready to go?

Two basic CD's feature the phone calls, the reading passages, and the chants.
Two additional CD's contain the dictations.

Testimony by Sima Kogan

Where in the World is a wonderful and useful resource for ESOL teachers, as well as a great learning tool for non-native English speakers. It meets an existing need for an interactive beginner-level manual. While providing a fun and interactive environment, it gradually introduces the students to a more complex vocabulary and sentence structure. The content of the book is very well organized and thought through. The unique format provides ample opportunities to practice speaking with proper pronunciation and intonation, as well as reading, writing, listening, and, most importantly, interacting. The assessments and exercises are well placed and encourage reinforcement of the newly learned material. As students "travel" around the world, they can apply new words and modern idiomatic expressions used by native speakers in believable situations. This is done in a way that is not intimidating
for a beginner. The manual provides a very practical approach that will be invaluable to the students in an English-speaking workplace or school.
