Explore fascinating content while building language competence and critical thinking skills. The best-selling NorthStar series (Series Editors: Frances Boyd and Carol Numrich), now in its Second Edition, offers two strands: a reading and writing strand and a listening and speaking strand. Both strands stimulate students' imagination, encourage critical thinking, and promote personal expression.


Revision Features

New and updated high-interest topics motivate students to express their own points of view. Expanded vocabulary and pronunciation practice ensure greater language proficiency. A grammar correlation chart links NorthStar , Second Edition, to two leading grammar series: Focus on Grammar and the Azar Grammar series. The fully integrated approach includes a teacher's manual with achievement tests, process writing activity books, audio recordings of the main reading and listening sections, a new video program, and a Companion Website (with vocabulary worksheets, video worksheets, Internet activities, and other resources).
