The learners that I used portions of this book with gave very positive feedback, which I also echoed. We liked the colourful images, natural contexts, and multitude of tasks. The short units use discrete items that can be used in isolation and do not need to be followed in sequence. Most of all, it is a user-friendly text that achieves one important goal encouraging the understanding and use of phrasal verbs for natural, fluent English.
