This highly acclaimed course is popular because it both interests and stretches learners.
Language in Use is a complete four level course from absolute Beginner to Upper-intermediate. The updated edition of the Pre-intermediate level contains totally revised material, together with a video and testing components. The result is a course that is suitable for a wide range of teaching situations.
The classwork for each level can be completed in around 80 hours, with additional time for the self-study work. The Teacher's Book contains all the pages from the Classroom Book, with interleaved teaching notes offering not only detailed support and guidance, but also many optional activities to cater for different abilities.
Flexibility: the course can be tailored to the needs of mixed-ability classes.
Dual syllabus: contains alternating grammar and vocabulary units.
Clarity: clear organisation makes the course really easy to use.
Creativity: highly original tasks stimulate students' personal contributions.
Self-study: workbooks and self-study cassettes are ideal for self-study.
The Beginner level offers genuine beginners' material which is carefully paced and highly systematic.
The Pre-intermediate level follows on from Beginner and builds effectively up to Intermediate level.
'The Self-study Workbook is a valuable addition to the Classroom Book. The tasks are remarkably varied from grammar exercises (including puzzles and games) to translation, listening, dictation, reading, pronunciation, to name but a few.'
