Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Dr Richards has created a very successful tool useful for not only instructing your students but also for inspiring them … the immediate benefits of using Interchange show themselves very quickly: while the students learn the language in a way that is natural and interesting to them, the teacher learns more about his or her own teaching style (as well as new and effective ways to instruct an ESL class) … a highly recommendable set of books to use.' Korea, TESOL Journal
