Upstream Intermediate B2 is a modular secondary-level course for learners of the English language at post-intermediate level (Pre-FCE, CEF B1/B2, ALTE A3/A4). The series combines active English learning with a variety of lively topics presented in themed units.(There are 10 theme-based units in five modules and 5 self-assessment modules). Upstream Intermediate B2 provides systematic development of all 4 language skills through realistic challenging tasks which encourage the learner’s personal engagement. It contains a variety of authentic stimulating reading and listening tasks, and, what I personally like about it, practices and activates essential vocabulary, collocations, idioms, phrasal verbs and word formation. I believe it’s very useful for those students, whose level is intermediate but vocabulary is poor and they are not ready to start upper-intermediate yet. Though it’s not very teacher-friendly, despite its interleaved Teacher’s Book, and requires either an experienced teacher or a well thought-out lesson plan.
