IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN… MEXICO by Carole P. Roman


As explained in the subtitle, A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World, this is the first book in a non-fiction collection about life in other countries from a child's perspective. 

The first country to be introduced is Mexico.

The author's main purpose is to give an idea about life and culture in Mexico to young readers: its capital city, language, festivals, monuments, food, etc.

It could be also used as a starting point for elementary school students to do some individual or group research about other countries and it's a good excuse to learn the 'second conditional'.

Grammar and Geography brought together to let the children investigate and appreciate the many cultures that inhabit our planet.

Colorful illustrations and a pronunciation table complete the whole experience.

Don't miss the next issues: France,Turkey, South Korea, Norway and Kenya are on the way!




I design series of activities based on a communicative method that will help children to practice the grammar they're learning at school.

Many ESL activities, I see, are nothing more than 'fill in the blank' exercises that only teach kids how to fill in blanks and miss the whole point of learning to speak and understand a new language.

It's much easier and more fun to learn by doing, and you'll be surprised at how quickly you'll see valuable results!!!
