Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good! I think the textbook is well-organized and has very useful exercises. I love the fact that it uses famous poetry, short stories and even Shakespeare, however, I am aware that some people will hate that. Most of the reading exercises are 'old' or use 'old English'. It could be a problem. Like I said, I love that. Varied and classical. CDS - there are 2 Am. English Cds, which is good, but they only recorded 1/4 of the exercises, so it is disappointing to most learners. Why not record all the exercises? In summary, I like this book and use it all the time with students & clients because it has cds, excellent exercises and explanations, great short readings and covers all the bases. Next version please add full recordings.
