I think this method will be extremely effective for teaching English to our students. Not only does it make sense to immerse kids in the second language, but it’s so fun! I loved every minute of training, and I feel closer to my fellow teachers because of it, so I know I will get even closer to my students. I cannot wait to get into the classroom. — Abbie Case
