The second edition of OUTCOMES has been fully revised and updated to provide contemporary, global content and sunning National Geographic photos and videos. Its trademark lexically-rich approach shows students how vocabulary works, and the evnly-paced grammar syllabus provides examples and tasks based on what people actually say and write. With a huge variety of talking points and practice, OUTCOMES teaches students the English they need to communicate outside the classroom.
Real situations, real language, real outcomes. The second edition of Outcomes is the only course that is consistently focused on helping students achieve the real world communicative outcomes they want and need. This lexically rich course emphasises students' need to have the conversations in English that they would in their own language. This new edition contains more contemporary and global content, reflecting English as it is used in the world and is visible via rewritten texts and new National Geographic photos and videos. There is a strong emphasis on real and natural English usage so students can develop the English language skills necessary for the real world.
When Van Morrison's double-length It's Too Late to Stop Now was released in 1974, it was an anomaly. Compiled from eight nights on his 1973 tour with his 11-piece Caledonia Soul Orchestra, it appeared months prior to Hard Nose the Highway. Contrary to standard industry practice of the time, its contents weren't doctored in the studio afterwards: There were no added overdubs or masked flubs. Some critics took issue with its sound – claiming the band, particularly the horns, were too thin – but there was no debate about the performances. It remains revered as one of the greatest concert recordings ever.
