Focus on IELTS Foundation Skills Book (Ebook+Audio)
This book is probably best used in a class, but might help self-study too. Behind the trite TEFL unit headings (`A sporting chance', `It goes with the job', `Family values', etc.) there are plenty of topics that should keep students interested, such as animal rights, the environment, architecture, smoking, the Internet and mobile phones. The text is clear, bright and attractively laid out. Photos, illustrations and diagrams all look sharp, modern and dynamic. In some course books, visuals can dominate or confuse the text. Not here. It's as easy on the patience as it is on the eye. The supplementary materials at the back are very good, including an academic word list, writing practices, and a great grammar guide
I met that book when I was studing in New Zealand 2 months ago, my ESOL teacher showed me the book, for it good for my IELTS study. Now I've go back to my home, Beijing, China. I bought this from Amazone UK website. When I received the book, I felt like I can see my friend again. Strange feeling.
Anyway, thanks for the book, thanks for Amazone, and thanks for your guys in UK!
Very nicely structured book and the delivery was super fast.
I love the book itself. Absolutely appropriate for anyone who wants to score higher than 7.0 on IELTS
