Straightforward has come of age and has been treated to a review, revamp and facelift. Much of the content has been updated and made more relevant to our ever-changing world. New topics, articles and exercises appear within a fresh new design. The CDs provide the audio material for the Student's Book listening activities and bring a range of native and non-native accents to the students' language recognition.
