Written by an experienced IGCSE teacher and trainer and endorsed by Cambridge, this series is up to date and comprehensive in its coverage. Cambridge English as a Second Language Coursebook 1 is a one-year, theme-based intermediate English course. It is ideal for students who are not yet ready to start a demanding, exam-focused course such as the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in English as a Second Language (E2L). It features interesting stimulus materials based on topical themes and focuses on developing the four key language skills. The coursebook comes with two audio CDs for use with the listening activities. The e-book version of the coursebook does not contain the audio material.
