This new course has been specially written for adults who need English for work, travel and everyday social situations. With Powerbase, they can:
- start speaking and writing immediately with structured communication activities in every lesson
- gain a thorough understanding of the essential grammar required for practical tasks and socialising
- learn the key words, phrases and skills that they need in their working lives
- practise listening and pronunciation skills
- develop the reading skills to deal with e-mail and the web as well as standard texts.
Powerbase is designed to be flexible. The 40 double-page lessons plus five review units can be extended with additional activities and photocopiable pages from the Teacher's Book. The three-level Powerbase series provides excellent preparation for other general or business English courses, such as Powerhouse. Each level of the course includes a Coursebook, a Teacher's Book, a Study Book and cassettes/audio CDs.
