A useful upper level skills textbook 1 May 2012
By Pedro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Passages 1 and 2 are written by Jack Richards, who led development of the popular Interchange series. I was pleased to find this advanced level companion to Interchange (which is really excellent). The 1st edition of Passages was a fairly useful text, but with numerous shortcomings. This second edition of Passages is a huge improvement. Richards et al. seem to have responded to user feedback, as well as taking a page from Interchange's success.

That said, I find I have to supplement this text much more often than I do the Interchange books. Specifically, I feel advanced students need even more examples of language in authentic contexts, yet Passages often skimps on these. Still, the functional language topics are useful for advanced students (at least, I find them so in a North American context) and the shortcomings can be overcome through authentic teacher-provided texts.

If you like Interchange and are looking for the next step, give Passages a try.

I'm studying english forever. It's not my native language. So good books are required. And this is a good book.

This is an excellent series - there are many interesting topics and the exercises are clear and consistantly interesting. It works well with one on one tutoring as well with some slight adjustments.
