New Headway is the best-selling series that combines the best of traditional methods with current teaching techniques. New Headway is renowned and valued for a reliable methodology that works at every level. No course offers more in terms of levels, components, and support. A new edition for New Headway Elementary, with a modified syllabus and extensive new material.
New Headway Elementary keeps to the successful framework of the original edition, but has been transformed by fresh new material throughout, a more accessible feel, and a completely new design.
The majority of the reading and listening texts have been replaced with vibrant new material on up-to-date topics with a more global outlook than before.
There is now a higher proportion of speaking activities, maintaining the balance between communicative and more traditional approaches.
The units are shorter, simpler, and clearer for students. The activities and instructions have been adapted and trimmed, but the book retains the same emphasis on thorough practice, ranging from very controlled to freer tasks.
The vocabulary syllabus is more tightly controlled than before to make it more manageable for beginners.
A new 'Starter' section at the beginning of each unit features a warm-up activity, often personalized, to lead into the topic and grammar of the unit.
New 'Grammar Spots' provide a mixture of explanation and self-check tasks for the grammar presented in the unit. The Grammar Summaries and Language Reviews are now at the back of the Student's Book for reference.
The 'Everyday English' sections at the end of each unit continue to provide key functional, situational, and survival work, but are now even more lively and conversational.
