Oxford English: An International Approach Students' Book 1 by Rachel Redford, Patricia Mertin

This new course provides students and teachers with current, meaningful, and practical activities along a thematic approach to help students to develop skills, gain confidence and enjoy the study of English. Each book provides reading, writing, listening and speaking activities that support the development of skills, knowledge, values and attitudes. The contents link up with internationally relevant and topical issues, helping students relate the study of English to other subject areas and understand the wider importance of their study, building their enthusiasm.


The chapters are wide enough to offer a lot of teacher input and involvement, the topics are wide enough to stray from what's on offer in the book, and there's enough substance in the three chapters we've looked at so far to stick to the text if we want to. Katherine Kells, Lorentz Lyceum, Netherlands It lends the MYP English Programme a degree of structure without losing any of the flexibility to bring in your own ideas. Andrew Macoustra, International School of the Hannover Region, Germany These books are excellent. The reading matter and the images are thoroughly international and the questions are naturally engaging, so they are good for any curriculum. Every student is bound to find something to like and to identify with. The grammar practice is easy for students to follow, and it has super vocabulary building exercises. It's a great resource for native speakers as well as EAL students. Gilly Halfpenny, Vienna International School, Austria
