Language Hub: Pre-Intermediate Student’s Book

Macmillan Education, ISBN: 9781380016904

Language Hub is a new, six-level general English course for adults. The B1-level contains a thorough, balanced syllabus, appropriate for pre-intermediate learners. Some topics are intriguing and quirky, such as ‘Unusual Art’ and the ‘hygge’ lifestyle from Denmark, which focuses on the simpler things in life. A useful video ‘sitcom’ models functional language in context. I especially like the diagrams for practising suffixes in the ‘Vocabulary Hub’ section. There is an occasional lack of space for students to write in a complete answer. The App allows teachers to assign individual consolidation tasks for students to complete on their Smartphones. Recommended.
