    ESL Student

    This text is the perfect text for ESL Students. There's alot of helpful information. The only draw back is it's a little expensive for a paperback text.

    B&N is awesome, the text was sent damaged and it was replaced immediately. They even included a postage free lable to send the damaged text back.

    Perfect for ELL's

    I am using Side by Side Volume I with my high school students who just arrived here from Poland. I see progress already. It's sequential and meaningful and very understandable.The students seem enthusiastic and happy.
