I'm currently teaching English to 5 students in Italy and all are working from this book. It moves in a logical order, is easy to understand. I couldn't do without it!

As this is a very useful book for self-study or for homework for a class, it really can be described as an essential resource. Grammar is split into easy steps and students can practise points they aren't sure of and check their answers in the back. The Intermediate and Advanced versions are available for higher students.
