Hi everybody!

These are the books we'll be using this year:

This book includes some extra online material. You can do the suggested activities as we progress in the course. Visit this link to see the New English File Pre-Intermediate online resources.

There are also some recommended books for those students with difficulties in pronunciation. If you are interested, you can buy the New Headway Pronunciation Pre-Intermediate (Oxford). The book includes a CD with audio tracks for your convenience, but it not obligatory.

Welcome to my Basic Level 2 blog!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my Basic Level 2 Blog!

This blog has been conceived as a complement to my on-site sessions at the EOI Torre-Pacheco. Here you will find extra material to work online and will allow you to expand your knowledge of the language any time you want.

I hope you find this blog useful and enjoy this online experience as much as I do.

See you around!
