Second Edition


Connect, Second Edition, is a fun, four-level, multi-skills American English course especially written and designed for young adolescents.

Motivation is encouraged through high-interest topics and lively activities. Each Student's Book contains eight units divided into two-page lessons with full-color photographs and illustrations. Also included in each unit are 'Get Connected' lessons which give students an opportunity to consolidate the English they are learning, and Theme Projects which help students connect their English to the world outside the classroom.

Key features

  • Up-to-date topics and contexts draw in students using high-interest topics which increase their motivation to learn English.
  • Engaging dialogs, exercises, and games provide opportunities for students to communicate about their own lives and experiences.
  • Point-by-point grammar boxes present grammar in a clear manner making it less intimidating.
  • Clear vocabulary presentations give students easy-to-understand definitions, structured practice, and the opportunity to reinforce what they have learned.
  • Graded, multi-skills syllabus presents vocabulary, grammar (Language Focus), listening, and reading in a logical sequence for both teachers and students.
  • Theme Projects take students beyond the manipulation of language by connecting their English with the world outside the classroom.
  • Controlled and open-ended speaking activities build up students' confidence with oral communication skills.
  • Teacher's Edition with worksheets, unit quizzes, and step-by-step instructions provides teachers with flexibility in their teaching.
  • The Arcade engages students in exciting online activities which motivate their English learning.

I've been using this textbook for the last few years with my ELT classes in Japan and find it well-structured for an effective curriculum. However, I'm disappointed that after 4 years of use (possibly longer) I'm still forced to use a highly antiquated version with no revised edition being available. The conversations (listening/reading) are somewhat unnatural and indicative of outdated techniques. Also, the pictures and vocabulary need updating. Many of my students can't recognize technological items due to them no longer being used by the pubic (Blackberry cellphones and MP3 players. really?). I would love to see a third edition soon.

Great! The course given had been worked out and published professionally, for sure in terms of being liked by the learnees themselves. p.s. the Peace studio course attendees*, in spite of being young, can already say something concrete in both methodological and real-life practice applicability terms. *
