Book Overview

The Intro Level Student's Book is designed for beginning students needing a thorough, slow-paced presentation of basic functions, grammar structures, and vocabulary. Intro is based on the principle that low-level learning does not equal low-level thinking. Topics such as clothing and fashion, sports and hobbies, food and diet, and holidays and customs are presented in unique ways using interesting real-life information. Beautiful color photographs...

Book review

The book is fine but the cd is missing. I need the cd.

A great series for ESL students and teachers......

I use "New Interchange Intro" to teach my ESL students conversational skills with a considerable amount of success. Each unit contains a "snapshot" that introduces the topic, conversation, grammar focus, fluency exercise, pronunciation, listening, and "word power" which helps to develope students vocabulary through a variety of tasks. The "New Interchange Intro" is comprised of sixteen units and each unit can be broken down into 2-3 one hour classes depending on the level of your students . The "Teachers Book" is an invaluable addition for successful lesson planning and delivery. It is also neccessary to purchase the tapes since some of the exercises cannot be completed without them.

Excellent condition

Great book. Students are enjoying it. It was in pristine condition and arrived in a timely manner.

A good and useful series for ESL teacher.

Having never used the first edition of this series, I picked up New Interchange Level 1 so that I could have a structured series to help my students learn general basic English skills. I have been pleased, and find that overall it is a good series to teach from. THE GOOD: Each chapter in New Interchange has a good variety of skills to learn and practice. Students are constantly engaged in reading, writing, listening, speaking, learning new vocabulary and practicing new grammar rules. The content isn't too heavy, and the book makes good use of color and white space so as not to overwhelm the student. I find that the structure of each chapter is constant and reliable so that the students become used to how things are done. The tapes and Teacher's Guide are invaluable! The workbook provides additional practice of concepts that the students have just learned in the student book. All of these resources combine to make it incredibly easy for me (as a teacher) to prepare and give good lessons. THE BAD: I have found that my students are often confused with the grammar exercises. What may seem like clear-cut explanations to a native English speaker obviously aren't that clear to the learners. I am also a little saddened by the fact that each chapter really doesn't go into great depth for any one skill or theme. Each skill is presented, learned and practiced in what sometimes feels like a rushed manner. I have also found it difficult to present an entire chapter in two one-and-a-half hour sessions, as the authors suggest. OVERALL: A good series with lots of skills practice. It is very useful for learners who want to study a variety of general English skills. Very nice for overworked teachers who don't have a lot of time to prepare lessons.

Best Book For Advanced Conversational Practice

I have used the Interchange series, as well as others. Interchange format encourages diologue between instructor and students. Interchange 3 is only for very advanced ESL students.
