Going Places teaches beginning ESL students the language they need for everyday activities at work, at home, and in the community. Students relate easily to the drawings, and are inspired to talk naturally about the very day situations the pictures show. With Going Places, students hear new vocabulary in a comprehensible and personalized context, which lays in the foundation for learning and producing English. What's more, Going Places emphasizes communicative competence. The twenty-seven units in each book are structured to promote listening, speaking reading, writing, and lifeskills.
