Headway 5th Edition: Upper Intermediate Student’s Book

Liz and John Soars / Paul Hancock

Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780194539692

The well-known Headway series now enters its fifth incarnation. The twelve units in this B2 coursebook include fresh topics like ‘Fake news’ and businessman Elon Musk, along with well-trodden areas like environmental issues. A helpful essay in the Teacher’s Book describes the ‘shift of attitude’ necessary to deal with higher-level learners, providing a good introduction to the books’ strong grammar focus. One outstanding feature is the wealth of digital material, including new video introductions for each unit, providing plenty of opportunity for teachers to develop blended courses. Rich and varied; the many users of this well-established series will not be disappointed.
