I'm interested in seeing coursebooks that follow the lexical approach. Can anyone here suggest a few titles?

Thanks in advance! Very Happy

Well, you could maybe try tracking down the ol' COBUILD English Course (Dave&Jane Willis), for a start. It's out of print, but there may well be a bookstore or two in HK that still has some copies (e.g. I picked up a copy of The Lexical Syllabus in HK a few years back).

Then there are titles such as Innovations (a Business English textbook, as I recall) from what was previously LTP (the publishing house that Michael Lewis founded).

Hi, I'm new to the forum, but perhaps you'd like to check out my website:
www.function-all.com
There are some free downloads for fun, context-based activities & samples from my texts. Over the next month or so, the site will begin to offer more downloads, so keep an eye on it!
I hope you find the material useful Very Happy

Fiona
