Although there is the occasional idea in here which I feel I could use with my students, this book now feels very dated. There seem to be lots of assumptions about how much you might be able to explain to your students, and the fairly frequent comment that certain activities can only be done with native speakers also marks this out as a book of its time. Definitely needs an update.
