I leave all my TEFL books to dogme list members. It reminds me of a story I was once told by someone (was it you Dennis?) of a West African country where the President passed a decree regarding the teaching of English in schools. The decree stated that on Monday Nouns were to be taught, Tuesday was for Verbs, Wednesday for Adjectives etc and Saturday for Prepositions. I guess this could have been called the 'Sentence a week' method. But then by week 2 it would be 'Beyond the sentence' wouldn't is Scott?
