Hi Matt,

I’m a new ESL teacher, just going through my cert class to teach in Colombia in retirement. For practicum I started teaching a free ESL class – before my cert class had even begun, because the need was so great – at a local community center with zero resources.

Your YATCB series, especially Mode 3, but really all your materials, got me up and running very quickly. Each time I re-read one of your books I find another gem.

Thanks for helping me start a program from scratch – a program that benefits many people with great need and motivation. The first class was 20 and is still growing, requiring that I think about expanding the days or finding another teacher!

Best Regards, Russ, USA [February 2018]
