100% user-friendly. Very practical for both students and teachers. It helps facilitators approach each language point through appealing topics.

I find this book completly useless becouse there is not any audio for the listenings in the student's book. For the price that I have paid for it (55 eur) I really think that the support team should be solve this problem and provide us with the necessary material.

I bought this book to study and prepare for the exam. Inside the CD-ROM aren't the exercises in the book but audio for extra practice. I would like know how can I do the exercise and where can I download the listenig! I really hope that there are available tracks to do the exercises of this book because the price of the book is not very cheap!

I am fully disappointed about the book, because it doesn't include the audio needed to make the listening exercises in the book. I feel cheated. That book cost a lot, what is the use to do this? Just take money from students??? Now what should I do with this useless book?? Wasted my money!!!! Really disappointed. I would ask you to resolve this problem by sending all the student that have bought your book the related cd audio.

I fully agree: What's the sense of adding extra resources if I don't get the listenings belonging to the book???

Is this a joke? Where are the listening?! How is possible that in 2015 we continue with this kind of scam? Please share free this audios! I paid 38€ for the book...

As a teacher I think it is an excellent book - the grammar explanations are some of the best Ive found. However, I have one gripe... That is that the online tests dont come with any answer keys!!! Please can this be rectified as theyre of no use to students like this, and if I use them as tests I want to know what the correct answers are. Thanks.

It a great shame to sell a book without CD for the listening exercises. I believe that the publisher knows the problem because many students have felt cheated after buying the book and continue to write it in the reviews. The information on this fact in the book are not clear and I believe that you can make a legal complaint. Why not solve the problem? it is speculation on the skin of the students just to do business?

I am writing to complain about the book, this is a STUDENTS book with answers but I have to say that was extremely disappointing found that IT DOESNT HAVE THE LISTENINGS! the CD ROM dont match with the listenigs, it has only extra I paid a lot because it was a very expensive book and now I cant do the listenings!!! I hope you understand how I feel about it. I would be most grateful if you could give me a reasonable solution. *For other students I recommend: First trainer Second Edition or Real listening and speaking 4

I have recently bought the students book edition, with answers, audio and CD-ROM. The book, witch has a splendid method, is very good BUT I am very disappointed about the resources: they are ONLY available for professors, it is a shame. Please, do not put a dedicate web page with resources in the students book if they are only available for professors.

Im really sorry I have to complain about this book because is really good but I dont know what to do without the listening. Its a really important for me and I fell a very disappointed. Moreover this book is quite expensive and most of us bought it thinking on self-study without the need of teachers materials. You must give us a solution.

I recently bought this book and I feel completely disappointed. Exercises in the CD Rom dont match with the book. For this reason I cant do the Listenings, which were the most interesting part for me. Its a shame because this book its really good.

From the Students book, in reference to the Writing paper: Each part carries equal marks and you are expected to write between 140–190 words for Part 1 and 140–190 for Part 2. Is it the same number of words for both parts? If so, I think it would be clearer if reworded.
