Review:

'Students ... engage in [the communication activities] with enthusiasm, their interest piqued and their judgement satisfied that the exercises are useful. The words of one student at the completion of an exercise - It is important. I love it - constitute a persuasive recommendation for the use of this lively text in the classroom.' Modern Language Journal

'The authors deserve credit for having produced a good tape and well-organized, creative materials which utilize effective methods of stimulating the kind of communication in the classroom which the students can transfer to their real-life situations.' TESL Canada Journal
