La idea aquí es mostrar todo el estudio que estuvo detrás de la construcción de este libro, que en realidad es un libro para el siglo XXI porque busca formar gente con criterio pensadores, críticos, hay que forzar a que los profesores revisen el teachers y lean la metodología detrás del libro.
Selections is designed to complement base courses in the higher sector of the market. It follows the progression of Brainstorm, so that the grammar students encounter in their course books will be at the same level as in Selections. However, Selections expands the vocabulary at every level, sot that students will be exposed to a wider range of language than the core language in their course books.
All the information for the following lines you may find it in the Brainstorm Product Profile. As we don’t have any pages for levels 4, 5 and 6, it would be important to tell the teachers the difference in the unit structure for these levels.
