Why choose the Azar-Hagen Series?

Your challenges:




My students find grammar hard to understand and boring.




The Azar-Hagen courses provide very simple and visually clear grammar explanations with a maximum of examples and a minimum of grammar terminology. The exercises are engaging and stimulating; they help the teacher create a comfortable and fun learning experience for the students.



I want my students to use grammar in context not just memorize the rules.




The Azar-Hagen Series uses a grammar-based approach, in which grammar is used as a base for the development of all skills: speaking, listening, reading, writing. It blends grammar methodology with communicative methods. Instead of memorizing rigid rules, this approach is focused on helping students to experiment with their new language
and gain confidence.


I’d like to supplement my main coursebook with additional grammar materials but I’m afraid that different vocabulary and content might confuse students.

platform in favour of a new and improved MyEnglishLab platform.

If you are planning to finish your current Azar Interactive course before the end of 2014, we recommend that you finish the course first, and then switch to the new platform. This way, you won’t need to recreate any new data in the middle of your course. However, if it is not possible, please upgrade as soon as you can.
