REVIEW


EDITOR’S POINT OF VIEW

NWTESL

New Ways in Teaching English at the Secondary Level:

  • Does not focus on a single language skill.

  • Compiles a series of integrated activities.

  • Combines all the skills and features of language learning.

  • Includes activities involving: authentic literature, academic content, multimedia use, peer cooperation, career information, etc.

Claudia Acero


EDITOR’S POINT OF VIEW

NWTESL

  • Includes activities with several objectives.

  • Has activities to practice note-taking, reading, writing, speaking, listening, summarizing and illustrating.

    Above all:

  • Helps learners to prepare for their academic tasks, not only for the language ones.
