Review:

About the Collins English for Life series:
‘… superb, attractively packaged series […] excellent support for candidates preparing for the Cambridge FCE and higher […] work on the topics, skills and current needs of the language learner […] may be used in various ways: either by learners alone, by teachers, or by teacher trainers on language development courses.’
Wayne Trotman, EL Gazette, August 2012

About English for Life: Speaking (B1+) :
‘…gets to the core of what is required to communicate appropriately […] Particularly useful are the cultural notes and related tasks’.
Wayne Trotman, EL Gazette, August 2012

About the Author:

After six years teaching in Europe, Australia and Asia, Nicola Prentis did an MA in ELT in York, England. Nicola then continued teaching abroad but took a new interest in designing materials. In 2010, she started writing graded readers and contributed to coursebooks and digital content for various publishers. She finds it difficult to stay in one place and has lived in 12 cities in 12 years. At present she’s happily living in Madrid but is very tempted by Burlington, Vermont, USA.
