Here are some comments about Hands-on English from our readers:


"This is the single best 'trade magazine' [for ESL] in existence. Every issue is crammed with useful, wonderful ideas. I love it!"
--Nancy Williams, Lva of the Lowcountry, Hilton Head Island, SC


"My pre-GED teachers make effective use of the HOE crossword puzzle and many of the activities in each issue. The students--all native English speakers, by the way--enjoy the activities because they can be successful with them while simultaneously building needed basic skills in math and reading. I have four pre-GED teachers who use HOE regularly.
"I'll bet ours is not the only adult literacy GED program that is enriched by your fine publication. Keep up the good work!"
--Grace Carson, BOCES2-Monroe/Orleans Counties, Rochester, NY


"It is a wonderful publication and is certainly filling in a gap that existed in the area of ESL teaching, especially with regard to adult education. Each issue offers various useful and fresh ideas that could be applied in class right away."
--R.B., Centennial Education Center, Santa Ana, California


"This is the best I've seen for ideas, resources. It makes teaching easier, fun. Very informative. Excellent."
--A.T., Asian Social Service Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


"Thank you for helping me to be the best teacher I can be by sending me a first class periodical full of ideas and activities that I can actually use--even in a multi-level environment."
--B.J.D., Cassata Learning Center, Fort Worth, Texas


"I love the 'you to me' atmosphere--it is great--please continue. The layout and articles are so professional it's hard to believe you are teachers instead of journalists."
--R.B., Rochester, New York


"Your newsletter is the most functional one I receive. Keep it up! It's appreciated."
--J.S., Jewish Community Center, Columbus, Ohio


"As a very new ESL teacher, I turn to Hands-on English constantly as it is a practical (vs. theoretical) help. I have the sense that it is a very caring publication and there is always something useful in each issue."
--N.M., Concordia College, Bronxville, New York


"Hands-on English is the best thing to happen to ESL teachers in the history of the profession. I really love it."
--C.H., Pittsfield, Massachusetts


"I look forward to each issue--full of useful, practical ideas for lessons and other information."
--L.D.K., Mat-su Literacy Project, Palmer, Alaska


"I use something from every issue. I love the multi-level crosswords, and the multi-level dictation you had recently is all set and ready to go when we are ready for a change-of-pace break in our routine at school. I really like being able to copy and use (with minimal extra work by me!) your fresh ideas. Thanks--and keep up the good work!
--D.A.H., Rochester, New York


"I feel inspired when I read it."
--C.S., Saratoga, California
