This clearly illustrated, comprehensible, and lively approach to English language learning is ideal for beginning ESL/EFL learners. The 30 theme-based lessons feature immigrants dealing with daily life in the United States such as moving to a new apartment, shopping, and birthday parties. Each chapter contains a short present-tense reading presented in list form, with a corresponding picture for every sentence. A unique photocopiable Interaction Grid for each reading gives students the chance to practice their oral language skills and review words. Each lesson also includes questions and answers, matching exercises, and simple writing activities. Teacher notes are in the back of student books.
