Editorial Reviews

I have taught ESL in the Palisades Park Public School System for the last 18 years and previously in the Jersey City, New Jersey school system for eight years and was intrigued to read Thinking In English by Dr. John Muciaccia. In fact, it was difficult to put this book down once I started reading it. " Thinking In English presents an intelligent and refreshing way of teaching ESL. Dr. Muciaccia presents his own view of the cultural immersion method and I found it a wonderful perspective. The book is filled with examples and anecdotes that explain everything mentioned in the book. I urge ESL teachers and self-learners to buy this book!"
