Part one in the book gives you basics for setting up a communicative classroom. It is good for a refresher or good to help you learn the basics of communicative theory. It is very basic, but good. Part 2 gives you some ideas on classroom activities. The ideas need to be built upon so don't think everything is ready to go. This book is quite old and their are other ideas out there. If you have a creative streak this will help you with some ideas. I liked the theory part for sure.
