I have been a NYC public school teacher for many years now (18) and I have been trying to find an appropriate ESL curriculum for some time. A few years ago I finally came across Santillana Spotlight on English, which met all of my teaching needs.

Spotlight on English introduces and reinforces new concepts, while also increasing vocabulary. It also exposes students to grade level academic vocabulary and provides models of Standard English.

I recommend Santillana’s Spotlight on English with no reservation because it has assisted our students acquire the necessary English language skills to successfully transition to the mainstream classroom.
