Format: Paperback
I used this book to teach English to Spanish-speaking adults learning English starting from zero, and this is an amazing book. The textbook is laid out in an easy to follow format, and grammar points are presented first in context so that it is natural for students. The book encourages students to figure out grammar rules for themselves (after seeing examples of it used correctly) before grammar explanations are presented. There are a variety of activities to help students master correct use of English (choosing between one of two correct sentences, making corrections to incorrect sentences, and matching the beginning and ending of a sentence) which serve as a bridge to effective writing and speaking. I have found the PreIntermediate version equally effective and hope that the elementary version is in stock again soon so I can order it for my students!

Never was a fan of books like these. I see their point in commercial language schools with new and untrained teachers heading off to Asia for their first time in a classroom. The books take care of planning and inject a soars pedagogy. For such circumstances I think the book could be seen as a easy 5 star - so I agree with the first review.

I think that with the range of literature online, and web 2.0 tool, these concocted books will be (should be) a thing of the past: for experienced instructors.

Format: Paperback
It's about time men spoke openly about the male-bashing sexism of the Headway books. It seems the Soars hired a 80s-style Gender mainstreaming consultant to bring these books in line with what was popular at the time, bashing or putting men down at all opportunities and boosting women whenever possible. There is not time for me to highlight all the cases of sexism in these books, but just one will show what I mean. Intended to 'put men in their place', this sexism would be better if it kept to facts, but unfortunately these books spread rumours long-since shown to be untrue, or invent or twist facts when they don't promote women or knock men. On page 57 of the Upper Intermediate book there is an exercise on radio advertisements. One of them is advertising car insurance, and points out that men are responsible for 81% of parking offenses. No arguments there. Most (nearly 100%) of delivery drivers are men, and double parking is a necessary evil of inner city deliveries. Also consider the number of men on the roads. In Germany, 75% of all drivers are men. If Britain has similar statistics, then suddenly the 81% figure doesn't look so bad! But Headway twists this statistic even more. What we hear on the radio is two men trying to park while criticizing a woman, before crashing. Yet this not a parking offense! Parking illegally, overstaying your meter time, double parking, those are parking offenses. Why do woman pay less insurance? NOT because they're better drivers, but because their crashes are cheaper! In Germany 25% of the drivers are women and they're responsible for 31% of all crashes.Read more ›
