Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had a very low level beginning intermediate Integrated Skills class this semester. This book actually puts it all together for you. You have vocabulary, reading selections with activities, writing selections with activities, and listening activities. They have online exercises for everything, and you can pick and choose what you want your students to do and when. I found the gradebook a little cumbersome to use and ended up using the one I've used for years, just transferring grades to it.

Some students were not very internet savvy and needed a little help navigating the online exercises, but all were fine by mid-semester.

Students told me they liked the topics (the common cold, does prosperity lead to happiness?, etc.) I gave them a choice as to which topics (units) they wanted to do. The units aren't built upon each other, so you can pick and choose what you do with your students. All in all, students gained a great deal of experience in using English in all 4 skills.
