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. This Pre-Intermediate edition is 90% new, with refreshed content and new features. New Headway Upper-Intermediate recognizes that learners at this level require a different approach to language learning. It moves away from examining language items in isolation, exploring grammatical areas in greater depth so that students begin to perceive the systems that underlie the language.
The listening and reading texts are drawn from a range of authentic sources.
An in-depth treatment of grammar enables students to work out grammatical rules and helps them achieve greater accuracy through a better understanding of how language works.
There is a thorough skills syllabus, with all four skills systematically developed and integrated through related tasks.
There is extensive work on vocabulary, with particular emphasis on the most frequently used verbs, phrasal verbs, idioms, and compounds.
Integrated pronunciation practice is provided throughout.
'Postcript' sections provide an opportunity to practise everyday English in situations (such as airports and hotels), or survival areas (such as telephones and directions). There is a particular focus on the grammar of spoken English.
The topics - including homelessness, pre-nuptial agreements, and the effects of tourism - have all been chosen to appeal to adults and young adults.
