Effective English integrates a strong foundation in basic language and communication skills with valuable life skills. It teaches the basic skills of reading, writing and speaking in English through discussions and examples set in the social contexts of everyday and professional life. In addition, each unit takes the student through the essentials of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and spelling. The units are graded from simple to complex, enabling students to gradually develop their language skills. The large number of exercises in the book will enable students to relate and apply what they have learnt to their own lives, encouraging them to think, speak and write in English with independence and insight. An interactive CD-ROM enriches the learning experience through extensive guidance on speaking, listening to, and pronouncing English.
