WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

”I so want to thank you for this valuable resource. It’s really helpful and  the cultural nuances you document are so true for these Saudi girls. I can only give positive feedback.” – Joan Carpenter, English Instructor ( taught in Saudi Arabia for 1 year at the time of making this comment)

 

” Teaching in Saudi Arabia is both challenging and rewarding.   I think this book gives an accurate overview of the challenges faced in Saudi classrooms, as well as some awesome activities and strategies to help you have a successful and rewarding teaching experience. I wish that I had had this book when I first started teaching in the Kingdom!” -   Janine C. Galindo (taught in Saudi Arabia for 13 months)

                     

“I highly recommend Marianne, and the ESL tools she has created because she has an “on the ground” perspective that is relished by Instructors such as myself. It is my view that the ESL tools she has created are effective — and, that is what we are all looking for – effective!” Belinda Baardsen ( taught in Saudi Arabia for 2 years).
