Let’s Go

Nearly 20 years ago, I got a call asking if I’d like to work on a textbook series that Oxford University Press was planning. Let’s Go has played a big part in my life ever since.

Let’s Go has been a remarkably collaborative piece of publishing. It was one of Oxford’s first publishing projects which worked with authors living in different countries.  When we first started, I lived in California, Karen Frazier (Tsai) lived in Taipei, Ritsuko Nakata was in Tokyo, and Carolyn Graham was in New York. Back then, we felt quite high tech with our desk top computers and fax machines–there was no internet or email yet!

If you are using Let’s Go, OUP has free, online materials and resources you can download. You can learn more at these websites.

Ritsuko Nakata also operates a teacher training center in Tokyo. You can learn more about her MAT Method, and find free activity ideas at the IIEEC website.
