"These are the first books I have come across where there is a special focus on writing SMS text messages, on buying goods on-line, on distinguishing different genres, etc. There is a lot of educational potential in these books as well. The information about the Great Pyramid, the Titanic, Thomas More, the Roman Army, etc. helped not only to brush up grammar but also to enrich and broaden my students' outlook. Some extra data about life in Great Britain, samples of surveys, library rules and diagrams gave us a closer look at your culture and mentality. To sum up, I'd like to recommend these books to all teachers who would like to make their lessons more productive and compelling, and to help their students be more enthusiastic and eager to learn English in and out of the classroom." - Tefl.net
Just Listening & Speaking: "...clear, practical and interesting...attractively illustrated and the tapes are clear...a variety of voices and accents which are always easily understandable...interesting range of topics, from news and commercials through authentic interviews to a murder mystery. The self-study speaking is a first in my experience. All in all, it would be a practical addition to your bookshelf." Just Vocabulary: "As the layout is modern and clearly arranged, you can use it for students, professionals and even teenagers...I like the book and can recommend it to all of you who want to spice up the vocabulary of your students with some interesting, intelligent, exceptional or remarkable words." Just Reading & Writing: "...the layout is very easy to use, in basic colour, with an answer key at the back. Its approach is very learner-centred, each unit working through 3 different styles of text, all with a variety of tasks to work through." - ETAS Journal, Switzerland
"In brief, this 'Just' series is very useful in an ESOL learning environment where differentiation is important. I like the fact that there is separate material for specific skills which lends itself to being used to support students with individual needs both on individual and group basis." - Natecla News
"The book is well designed, the graphics are attractive and there is a variety of practice exercise types...has tremendous potential. I can imagine lots of discussions with students simulating role-plays similar to those on the tracks." - Just Listening & Speaking Intermediate Book Review featured in ELTAF Newsletter
"I really would like to use these four books as they give you the freedom to pick & choose, catering to needs & interests, with the bits that you don't cover being completed as self study...a learner-centred approach. As self-study materials, they are self explanatory & learner friendly...ideal to recommend when using a lopsided coursebook or a student asking you for supplementary material. These books would be ideal when working with 1-1 classes & it would also appeal to the more mature class such as the corporate-based class. To sum up, this is certainly one of the ways forward in the provision of course materials. Definitely worth checking out." - http://developingteachers.com
