Talking to The Whole Wide World was designed to equip generalist primary and elementary teachers to teach their class Esperanto as they themselves are learning.
This would be a risky strategy in another language but it is quite practical in Esperanto because the rules can simply be learnt cumulatively and will not be discredited by encountering exceptions later.
The book has 100 pages and is divided into 40 sections, which could be covered in the 40 weeks of a school year, if time allows, or over 2 years or more if necessary.
Each section teaches some grammar and provides plenty of varied activities for practice: songs, games, jokes and more.
A CD provides all necessary guidance for pronunciation.
