Which textbooks are good for absolute beginners (adult)?

Unread postby Sara » 21 Sep 2006, 09:15

Hi,
I'm just about to start teaching a complete beginner one-to-one. She will have about 4 hours a week with me. I have never taught a total beginner before and I would really like some advice on text/work books.
Thanks a lot.

Books for beginners

Unread postby Lucy » 21 Sep 2006, 20:42

Hello Sara,

I am a great fan of The English File beginner book, it's published by Oxford University Press. There is an excellent teacher's book to accompany it.

I also like the series The New Cambridge English course.

Good luck with these lessons and please write in again, if you would like more ideas.
