“THE BEST material for teaching English as a foreign language. The four skills are treated in a very communicative way.”

With the new 3-in-1 volume students can:

  • Student’s Book: Build confidence in class with English File’s perfect blend of Grammar, Vocabulary, and skills in every File.
  • Workbook: Activate knowledge immediately with Workbook activity pages that follow each File.
  • Online Practice: Look again at Student’s Book activities, do extra practice activities and check progress online. Speakers of Spanish tackle the areas of language that challenge them most with specific focus on the pronunciation, vocabulary and listening skills these learners find most difficult.

“The choice of materials reflects things that I myself find interesting and can put over with enthusiasm”

  • Enjoy teaching with brand new and timeless English File lessons.
  • Students learn in the way that interests them most with a huge variety of video – including a motivating drama series, documentaries and in the street interviews.

“The best thing is the variety of materials which I can adapt for myself.”
