A Year in the Life of an ESL Student

Today, we will start using the book, A Year in the Life of an ESL Student by Edward Francis.

The book follows Andre, a student from Switzerland, as he spends a year completing his English studies at a private language school in North America: from his arrival at the airport, to getting around the city, to attending school, to hanging out with his classmates. The book features good dialogues, interesting idioms, and fun activities.

This book does not have audio practice, so we will use listening exercises from ESLPod that are like the chapter in the book. The first chapter is about Andre's terrible airplane flight, which is similar to the problems in ESL Podcast 362 – Getting In-Flight Service .

I hope you enjoy the new book!
