5.0 out of 5 stars First rate resource...but be careful when ordering!
This is my favorite series for teaching ESL listening/speaking skills to adults. I especially like levels 4 & 5, because they use authentic excerpts from NPR radio broadcasts for their audio segments. They also have the full script in the back of the book if the student wants to follow along. They pull certain words from the audio segments and use them to create vocab...

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate resource...but be careful when ordering!, October 28, 2010
This review is from: NorthStar: Listening and Speaking Level 4 Student Book, Third Edition (Paperback)
This is my favorite series for teaching ESL listening/speaking skills to adults. I especially like levels 4 & 5, because they use authentic excerpts from NPR radio broadcasts for their audio segments. They also have the full script in the back of the book if the student wants to follow along. They pull certain words from the audio segments and use them to create vocab. lists, then also have comprehension and discussion questions. The topics are quite interesting and spark lots of great conversation. So for this sort of thing, there is nothing I've found that students enjoy more.
They do also have sections on grammar and pronunciation, which I usually skip. They are not that great, and we cover those topics in other books.
Now, what do you need to order? You really can't use the books without the audio CD's, but they must be purchased separately. The publisher also has a web-based feature which requires a passcode, but you don't really need this to use the books--it's an extra resource. There is also a teacher's guide you may choose to get--it has answers to the questions and tests, but again this is optional. Both of these things are very nice, but optional. So if you only need to tutor one or two adults and cost is an issue, you can get by with just the book and the audio CD.

1.0 out of 5 stars There no code on that book, you must pay a code apart?, June 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It would bring the code but it didn't. There's no access to the lab. Incomplete, it seems cheap but it is NOT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, October 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NorthStar: Listening and Speaking Level 4 Student Book, Third Edition (Paperback)
I got it in an excellent condition, brand new, along with the reading and writing book which was in the same condition. They are much cheaper than the ones at the college, although they are the same edition, I'm using them daily. I'll sell them when the course is done.

This review is from: NorthStar: Listening and Speaking Level 4 Student Book, Third Edition (Paperback)
I ordered a new book, and paid 30$ for it. It should have been in 2 days. Instead I waited 5 days and got used book. I need this book, so I on't have time to send it back, returned and waiting for another one, but want at least 70% of my money back.
