2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Marmaduke on 18 Nov. 2013
Format: Paperback
This is one of the books that launched modern EFL on its glorious career. The idea that language is used for communication, which scarcely seems to have entered the heads of previous authors, is exemplified by this book. The principle of the book is extremely simple: What would you say in a particular situation and how would you say it? Not: write a third conditional sentence about Horatio Nelson's aunt in which both clauses are in the passive, with the subordinate clause inverted and the main clause containing the word 'thereunto'. The only drawback of the book is that it isn't illustrated. It's a pity it hasn't been reissued. Although it isn't a coursebook as such, modern coursebook writers could learn a lot from it.
