This intermediate level book uses a problem-solving format to develop English language skills. Each of the 16 chapters presents students with relevant, open-ended problems and offers a number of possible solutions. This leads to analysis, discussion and even role-playing. All of these activities are designed to encourage students to contribute at their level of linguistic ability and to practice communicating ideas as clearly as possible. Finally, by allowing for the varying linguistic skills and rates of progress of individual students in a class, it helps the teacher to avoid making rigid linguistic demands on a class of varied ability.
