Each of these courses include: The New Headway student's book, New Headway workbook, New Headway Class audio The teacher does not need to have all the course books but only those that are required to teach the level of your students. After you get more students, you the teacher will slowly add each course book to your library and will probably end up owning all of them. And if just a few hours of teaching one student will pay for one of the Headway course books [ student's and workbook and class audio] then this is the best investment you can make. The students use the student's book and workbook for their level of English, and the teacher also has the student's book, workbook, and also the class audio cd's which are for the student's book. That is all both the student and teacher need. And you can also teach English via Skype using the New Headway course books. Why New Headway?

Headway Student's Book - Elementary.
By themselves, however, the guidelines support the present academic investigation by allowing detailed comment on the syllabus and methodology employed. They also follow a logical progression from general to particular. Guideline One: Coursebooks should correspond to learners' needs. They should match the aims and objectives of the language learning program. Guideline Two: Coursebooks should reflect the uses present and future which learners will make of the language.
Select coursebooks which will help to equip students to use language effectively for their own purposes. Guideline Three: Coursebooks should have a clear role as a support for learning. Like teachers, they mediate between the target language and the learner. The courses are not-for-credit, are aimed at the general public and usually consist of hours of instruction over 10 weeks.
The learners range in age from and include university students, working people, housewives and retirees who are usually studying English for one or more of the following reasons: In the case of most levels at the institute, there is no external syllabus — the coursebook represents the syllabus. This instruction has traditionally concentrated on reading skills, vocabulary and grammatical form, although successive national curricula have tried to put more emphasis on communicative competence, functional over grammatical syllabuses, and fluency over accuracy Kwon, Oral communication traditionally has been under-emphasized, with the result that the average Korean learner of English will have received only lifetime hours of listening and speaking instruction Kim and Margolis, Lessons are expected to emphasize oral communication through pair- and group-work but must generally include a focus on form also.
As we shall see, this has implications for the methodology to be employed. Learner needs and program aims Coursebooks should correspond to learners' needs. The underlying premise seems to be that traditional approaches are effective in developing formal competence but in themselves are not enough.
This idea has a strong history among methodologists and coursebook writers. Writing about teaching approaches found in coursebooks before the advent of the communicative approach, McDonough and Shaw note that: But as we shall see in section 5 on methodology, this combination of form-focused and meaning-focused modes of instruction is potentially problematic and not at all straightforward.
Figure 1 below shows two sample units.
Doing without , which threads through the various strands of content. Meanwhile, the importance of form is also made obvious by the prominent placement of grammar in the second column. A closer look at the language included, to see if it is appropriate to the needs of a general English course, will be the focus of the next section. Usefulness and relevance — the syllabus Coursebooks should reflect the uses present and future which learners will make of the language.
A rationale for Type A syllabuses can be found in Swan quoted in McDonough and Shaw , who argues that When deciding what to teach to a particular group of learners, we need to take into consideration several different meaning categories and several different formal categories.
We must make sure that our students are taught to operate key functions … to talk about basic notions … to communicate appropriately in specific situations … to discuss the topics which correspond to their main interests and needs … At the same time, we shall need to draw up a list of phonological problems … of high priority structures, and of the vocabulary which our students will need to learn.
In addition, we will need a syllabus of skills … Through language use, both productive and receptive, learners become aware of language form and gradually adjust and develop their own language in light of this.
Moreover, many have questioned the wisdom of itemizing language items when in fact it is asserted that learning cannot be predicted.
Research has shown that linguistic development is more a matter of unpredictable acquisition rather than predictable learning Ellis, , Skehan, and Skehan, However, the reality is that Type A syllabuses …represent the conventions upon which the most widely used language course books have been based and indeed, the most popular newly published materials continue to draw upon this tradition.
The reluctance to break away from established tradition reflects, no doubt, widespread teacher and student preferences and expectations on the one hand and the caution and realism of publishers on the other.
White, Returning to Figure 1 above, we can see how the authors use the categories of language input and skills development to organize the various syllabus strands.
The contents of these two categories shall be looked at now in more detail. The contents are summarized in Figure 2 below. Approximately one- fourth to one-third of the material in each unit is given over to grammar-related presentation and practice material.
There is no indication of what considerations went into the selection and grading of this material.
Sinclair and Renouf assert that such content is often not based on an analysis of language but on an analysis of other coursebooks and pedagogic grammars. This apparently refers to the material in the postscript section. Grammar may be an ill-chosen name for this material, as it seems much more lexical in nature — as opposed to things like such as ellipsis or tags, which have been identified by McCarthy and Carter as grammatical features of spoken English.
Many of the elements correspond directly to aspects of word knowledge that Carter has identified as important for second language learning, e. It should be noted, however, that the practice of learning vocabulary in lexical sets Units 4, 7 and 10 , which Headway and many other coursebooks advocate as an efficient approach, has been criticized recently by Nation , who cites research showing that it leads to cross-associations and therefore interference in recall.
As noted above, some items here are useful but others are clearly not relevant for Korean learners, for example, the material on English signs Unit 6. Surveys have shown, however, that Korean students overwhelmingly prefer an American variety of English, both in the accent spoken by their instructors and in the teaching materials employed Gibb, This mismatch has the potential to create serious disappointment among learners and must be addressed by the teacher if this book is to be chosen for a Korean context.
One solution is to supplement the book with listening and vocabulary material including North American accents and lexis. Unit 5 note-taking and summarizing e.
Unit 10 reading for inference e. Unit 2 appreciating literature e. True to the authors' claims, the book contains at least one reading or listening text in each unit. Many units contain two, although in such cases the first is a simplified text designed to present or practice a grammar point rather than to develop skills. The texts meant for skills development are generally longer and more authentic e.
While the variety of task types is impressive, the same cannot be said of the choice of text types. As has been noted, many learners at the institute are planning to study abroad someday, which might argue for a few more texts in an academic style e.
The issue of language variety also comes into play here as students tend to complain about the difficulty of understanding the British English accents heard on the accompanying tapes. Speaking Without exception, the speaking tasks in Headway follow on from, or serve as warm-up material for, the language presentations and other skills work in each chapter. The types of tasks included are as follows:
