5.0 out of 5 stars Well Focused 6 July 2007
This book is probably best used in a class, but might help self-study too. Behind the trite TEFL unit headings (`A sporting chance', `It goes with the job', `Family values', etc.) there are plenty of topics that should keep students interested, such as animal rights, the environment, architecture, smoking, the Internet and mobile phones. The text is clear, bright and attractively laid out. Photos, illustrations and diagrams all look sharp, modern and dynamic. In some course books, visuals can dominate or confuse the text. Not here. It's as easy on the patience as it is on the eye. The supplementary materials at the back are very good, including an academic word list, writing practices, and a great grammar guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! 4 Jan 2014
By Norton
I met that book when I was studing in New Zealand 2 months ago, my ESOL teacher showed me the book, for it good for my IELTS study. Now I've go back to my home, Beijing, China. I bought this from Amazone UK website. When I received the book, I felt like I can see my friend again. Strange feeling.
Anyway, thanks for the book, thanks for Amazone, and thanks for your guys in UK!
I never do an oversea trade before, it's my first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful for teachers 9 Nov 2011
By Louisa
I teach IELTS and simply don't have time to prepare every lesson from scratch, so I found this textbook very useful. It's clearly laid out with interesting subjects and appropriate visuals. I also found it very focused towards the exam with lots of exercises practising essential skills such as skimming and scanning, recording key academic vocabulary etc.

I supplemented my lessons with extra grammar practice, which this book doesn't really deal with, and writing practice for task 2 in the exam, which many students have difficulties with.

I agree with a previous reviewer that it's better suited to the classroom than independent study: I found that I needed to help my students understand the process as well as the product. I also feel that a teacher is needed for the writing element in order to guide students to properly structure texts, and to help with coherence and cohesion.
