I'm looking to invest in some more books to offer a wider variety of lesson material to use in the lessons. Does anyone have any recommendations? Also do you know of good sites to get such recommendations?

I don't use coursebooks anymore - the lesson material is generally too artificial.

 

For younger (and sometimes older) students, these questions/short articles may do the trick:

Thanks, I don't always use course books but it can be good sometimes to base lessons on.

 

I'm not just interested in course books but really any which could help me be a better teacher.
