“What I really like is that he enthusiastically gets into the nitty-gritty of lesson planning, demonstrating how you can have a practical “comprehensible input” approach, whilst keeping a close eye on grammar.  It’s the detailed descriptions of lessons using this approach which make the blog unusual. It may seem surprising, but I come across relatively few blogs of this type. There should be more of them.” (Read more here.)
