This book has been written as an aid for teachers to teach English to second language learners and as a self-learning aid. Either way you will find the methodology easy to follow and the lessons and sections easy to understand.This book contains the first twelve lessons of very basic English. It can be used as a starter for any student wanting to learn English and of any nationality. The method uses translations in Brazilian Portuguese but can easily be converted and used in any other language. Translations are not really necessary because the method simply uses the same method your mother used to teach you, by using examples and copying her. The teacher teaches in much the same way as your mother taught you to speak when you were a child. Please note that although this book has translations in Brazilian Portuguese, it can easily be converted to any other language.This system of language teaching has been designed to be used as a simple way for teachers and or travelers to earn some extra money as well as to be used in the classroom and as a means of self study at home. Some years ago whilst traveling. I found the need to be able to make some extra money to help me pay for my living expenses whilst away from home. It gave me the freedom to travel whilst at at the same time, I was able to carry the tools I needed to be able to offer the locals English classes where ever I happened to be.
