New Headway Beginner
is a new full-length foundation course in basic English for absolute beginners,or for those who have learned a little English but lack confidence to build on it. It provides a solid introduction to the structure of the language, gradually building students’ understanding of basic grammar, equipping them with key vocabulary, and giving them skills to 1 with simple social situations.
New Headway Elementary
can be used by both true and false beginners. It provides a foundation in the structure of the language, gradually building students` understanding of the basic grammar, vocabulary, and functions of English…
New Headway Pre-Intermediate
provides a syllabus progression from elementary to upper-intermediate level. It takes a structured approach to grammar. Grammatical structures are introduced in context, with questions that encourage students to work out the rules for themselves.
A “Grammar section” at the back of the student`s books provides a reference before, during or after the lesson. A vocabulary syllabus concentrates on three key areas: learning new words in lexical sets; acquiring good habits for learning vocabulary; and developing vocabulary “systems” such as sound and spelling relationships. Integrated skills work is an important feature of the course.
New Headway Intermediate
– This new intermediate course provides approximately 120 hours of language learning. It fits neatly between Headway Pre-Intermediate, and Headway Upper-Intermediate, and together with Headway Elementary and Headway Advanced provides a comprehensive language teaching series for today’s classrooms.
New Headway Upper-Intermediate
recognizes that learners at this level require a different approach to language learning. It moves away from examining language items in isolation, exploring grammatical areas in greater depth so that students begin to perceive the systems that underlie the language.
New Headway Advanced
is The long-awaited, totally new edition of the Advanced level, providing a real challenge and stimulus for Advanced learners. – Building on the original Headway Advanced grammar syllabus, challenging language work really stretches advanced learners.
Do i need to own the whole set?
The teacher does not need to have all the course books but only those that are required to teach the level of your students. After you get more students, you the teacher will slowly add each course book to your library and will probably end up owning all of them.
And if just a few hours of teaching one student will pay for one of the Headway course books [ student’s and workbook and class audio] then this is the best investment you can make.
The students use the student’s book and workbook for their level of English, and the teacher also has the student’s book, workbook, and also the class audio cd’s which are for the student’s book.
That is all both the student and teacher need.
