Half CI/Half Grammar – 3

Here’s a plan to combat the daily burden that weighs so heavily on too many CI teachers’ shoulders when they try to use it in schools and find that it might be easier to fight a rabid dog.

If you are a French teacher, get the Eli Blume Deuxieme Livre and teach from that book. It’s the only thing that kept me sane before I heard about Krashen – for those first 25 years.

Just don’t get (from Amsco Publishing) the book with a similar name – the “French Two Years” book. It’s terrible. Get the one w the specific title of Deuxieme Livre.

I don’t know if there is a Spanish version of this book. Someone would have to contact Amsco and let us know.
