An excellent course book
on 12 April 2009
I use the New Headway course with both class and private students. My previous book was the Cambridge equivalent and NH is so much better. The language progression is about the same but the layout is easier to follow with easy-to-see pictures (Cambridge has tiny pictures with fine details that older students just can't read), bright colours and interesting contemporary conversations to learn from. There are also chapter-specific grammar and vocabulary sections at the back of the book which can be very useful for reviews.
The Oxford NH course seems to be enjoyed by all the students and they learn well from it. I would recommend it if you can get it locally (here in the Canaries, Amazon still ship), given that all these complete courses are rather expensive to get the set. It's the total price that costs New Headway the fifth star.
