Here are some comments from our clients.
In general, this work with the method, among other things because it allows me to enter and collate complementary activities of other methods, internet, etc. and after them I find it easy to pick up the book itself, which is sometimes complicated by other methods whose units do not follow a structure as still as Traveller.
The book works well in the communicative part – especially writing because it introduces the task with a speaking exercise. I also liked the readers and oral understandings that cover almost all the items on the agenda. I find it somewhat ambitious in the vocabulary although this is positive for the good students. Greetings.
This is what I liked from Pioneer B2 and C1, especially for the students who are going to perform EOI certification examinations or Cambridge exams:
I’ve been using levels A1, A2 and B2. On the whole, I’d say I’m extremely happy with this series of books, not least because they give students ample opportunities to practice the grammatical structures and vocabulary of each unit at home. The presentation of phrasal verbs at level B2 is particularly successful, many students telling me how useful it’s been for them. One final point: the book is excellent value for money.
My view of your book is thoroughly positive. Its strong points include numerous reading passages at a higher level than we’re accustomed to in works of this kind and a great variety of exercises. The fact that it forms part of a series makes it particularly suitable for use as a course book. I also greatly appreciated the ease of communication with the authors and their openness to suggestions.
The course contains carefully-chosen topics which appeal to the students at each level, holding their interest and motivation to learn English. I liked all the references to different links and pages on the Internet, I think using the Internet’s resources and the new technologies should become part of teaching English.
This is a very complete English course. Not only does it cover all the grammar points according to the Common European Framework at each level, but it is full of interesting texts and fun-to-do exercises. The grammar is laid out clearly in “Language Focus” and “Remember” windows throughout each book, which makes studying easier, and there is a useful Grammar and Pronunciation Reference at the back. There is also a fun story to follow throughout each book which students will love.
