4.0 out of 5 stars User friendly 17 Oct. 2010

I've been using this text for the last 4 years with intermediate ESL students. The exercises and their instructions are easy to understand, nicely sequenced, and allow for a measure of creative writing that the students can enjoy. There should be an accompanying answer booklet to help negate any student protests to the teacher's answer choices. However, that said it is a very easy writing series for ESL teachers short on preparation time.
