Passages is a two-level, multi-skills course that takes students of English from the high-intermediate to the advanced level. Passages Student's Book 2 is designed to build on Passages Student's Book 1. It contains 12 units divided into two four-page lessons. It continues the popular Interchange approach to listening and speaking by offering a communicative methodology that focuses on both fluency and accuracy. At the same time, it provides more opportunities to develop reading and writing abilities, as well as more challenging content to develop students' higher-level thinking skills. It uses a systematic presentation of grammar, interactive vocabulary-building activities, and engaging, authentic readings and recordings.
