5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed! 19 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was well worth the money and fully deserves its 5 stars! I have only recently begun teaching a group of Spanish adults. Some are complete beginners and others had a little knowledge. They all bought the book and I bought the teachers' book and CD which make lesson plans a doddle! The units are very well thought out and introduce vocabulary and grammar slowly, progressing gradually through the book with the use of interesting stories and real life situations. There is the option to progress at your own speed through the units and they provide a mixture spoken and written exercises. Fully recommended for any teacher of beginners/elementary English students!New Headway Elementary - the THIRD edition: Teacher's Book: Teacher's Book Elementary level

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexism 23 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I couldn't agree more about the ridiculous sexism of the Headway books.
Men are stupid and women are fantastic.
At first it irritated me - but, as I teach exclusively to international business people with brains, I quickly discovered that I can use this as a tool since they all laugh themselves silly at the hilariously funny attempts to be absolutely perfectly politically correct on every level of gender equality - reversing every possible stereotype about men.
More please more - it's great fun - how about some sexual orientation equality or some disability equality - after all - business people come to Britain first and foremost to learn about gender equality and only secondly do their companies pay for their english tuition!

1.0 out of 5 stars Headway converts to American English 29 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Very unfortunately, "New Headway Elementary", which used to be an excellent British English textbook, has now been converted into a horrible mish-mash of British and American, with a strong American bias. Recommended for Americans maybe, but definitely not recommended for British English.

2.0 out of 5 stars One word@ twee 13 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
In the light of advancing formats, and more communicative approaches, the Soars approach seems a little creaky.
They serve a purpose, but many exercises (certainly in int and upper inet) are focused on too many comrephension tasks.
The layout (and New Cutting Edge has the same fault, but at least has redeeming features)fails to take into account the
new double-page mini unit format (Face2Face, Total English - it works less well on the Oxford English Result series, but
that's due to content, rather than format [though the Eng Result Upp Int is pretty good, the Int less so).

This seems a middle-brow, middle-of-the-road, twee series. it gives off a feel of middle England, Agatha Christie tweeness.
the elementary and pre-int are still serviceable but outclassed by Face2Face certainly. The Headway Int and Upp Int....
I give up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ESOL book on the market 10 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I teach ESL in China, and the New Headway series is a Godsend. Yes, the new books focus more on American English, which is the rage here these days. Students tell me American English is easier to pronounce and easier to understand than British English. Since AE is the preferred language for international business, it makes sense to expose students to it. I got so tired of reading other ESL books that focus on British references and British examples, this is a true breath of fresh air!
