Review quote

Just wanted to thank you for the sample of the English B Skills and Practice book. It is absolutely beautiful, helpful and awesome! It will be in my adoption list for next year. The students are doing great with it and teachers love it. Thank you, thank you thank you! * Maggie Prieto, Head of Languages, Bachillerato Alexander Bain, Mexico * My students have been using the new English B Course Book and find it stimulating, informative, and readily addressed the assessment. It is such terrific news that we will have a Skills and Practice book for students in the future. * Maggie Zhang, Head of English, Guangdong Country Garden School, China * This volume forms an excellent complement to the English B Course Book. As one expects from this team of authors, the approach is lucid and practical... this is much more than a collection of tricks for exams. The whole extensive section on text types would be useful reference material for basic teaching, the sections on HL and SL Written Assignments should be explored as soon as you introduce the WA project to the students, and the section on the Oral Interview has
valuable points to make about how to do any oral presentation. The two books, together, form an excellent foundation for any English B course with any group of students. * David Ripley, English B Consultant, InThinking *
