The syllabusses of books of all publishers are closely matched in these respects and a change of texbook series at the passage from one level to another is absolutely possible, but not necessarily recommended if the students were happy with the series.

New Interchange, is, according to the publisher, the world’s most successful series for adult and young adult learners. I have used Interchange, but the book is not one of my favourites. Depending on what your students prefer and if you prefer to teach British English, you may like to examine othe titles by CUP, or even look at the catalogues of Oxford University Press and Longman.Visit the websites of major publishers such as Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Longman to learn more.
