I use this series a lot at school and all the time for my private students. It's set up with lots of easy pictures that make each grammar point clear and really shows the students when and how to use them. Also it has a lot of exercises that help the students practice. Great for fluency exercises too. The teacher can then build on the chapter to suppliment the lesson. I recommend this book to all my students.
