From Oprah Winfrey’s astounding achievements and Britney Spears’ debatable charisma to city comparisons across the world, personality questionnaires, Harry Potter potions, and balancing work and play, this full-color series tackles dozens of contemporary, trendy topics via fabulous, full-color “views!” Ideal for situations in which the classroom might be the only place students interact in English, the trademark two-page lessons are closely linked through seven sections: Getting Started, Listening/Reading, Grammar Focus, Pronunciation, Speaking, Writing, and Conversation to Go. The approach follows a simple and proven MAP: Motivate learning through stimulating content, Anchor language production with strong presentations, and Personalize learning through engaging speaking activities. Each student book contains 28, four-page units, seven review units, four World of Music units, a grammar reference section, vocabulary list, and an audio CD to extend listening and pronunciation practice outside of class.Companion Website: download even more activities!
