Communicator is a complete two-level course in functional communication for intermediate-level learners of English. The program provides dynamic, communicative practice that involves students in lively interactions based on the content of real-life contexts and situations. Its innovative "tri-dimensional" curriculum integrates functions of English, grammar, and content in a comprehensive all-skills program.

Communicator is an ideal stand-alone conversation-based course for intermediate-level learners. It is also a perfect follow-up to both Side and Side and ExpressWays and has been designed to serve as "Books 5 and 6" of either series. It builds upon the grammar curriculum of both programs while enriching students' functional language abilities as true communicators of English.


  • Guided Conversations offer students meaningful and lively communication practice.
  • Check-Up exercises provide reinforcement of functions and grammar, along with intensive listening comprehension practice.
  • Interchange, InterAct, InterView, and InterCultural Connections activities enable students to relate lesson content to their own lives, participate in role-playing and cooperative learning activities, and discuss cross-cultural issues.
  • Reading Passages and In Your Own Words activities provide students with reading and writing experiences based on themes presented in each chapter.
