About the series:
What is it? Collins’ innovative English for Life series adds the extra bit of authenticity to your studies that traditional coursebooks often lack. The series includes helpful up-to-date and relevant topics needed to get by in English and uses authentic material from the Collins Corpus, the world’s largest database of the English language.
How can the series be used? The series can be used for independent study (self-study) and extra assignments, it's a great supplement to existing coursebooks, and the books can also be used as stand-alone coursebooks for short courses. All books have accompanying teacher resources available online.
What levels are available? There are three levels available:
B2+ (Upper intermediate)
- ”My image of the ‘writing”section in a typical ELT library would be a short, rather dusty, neglected shelf with just a few titles related to either academic writing, exam preparation or perhaps business English. What feels original about this new writing book from Collins is that it contains a wide range of genres with a great variety of personal or work-related writing dealing with different levels of formality and types of audience.’Jon Clayden, Academic Manager, Eurocentres London© Copyright BEBC REVIEW PANEL 2014
