  • The best Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language book that I have used. As a teacher I find it very useful. The skill developing exercises are very well made and the tons of sample student answers in each section are very useful. Each and every chapter gets the students ready for the exam with quite interesting readings and listening activities. Couple them with the links to the online resources and it is great. A must buy for any ESL teacher. - Amazon teacher review
