Description: Edito is a method geared toward adults and mature adolescents wishing to gain mastery of CECR level B1. A variety of societal and cultural themes are presented throughout the book using authentic documents (articles, video and audio clips), including the media, arts & culture, travel, history, the environment, the working world, and more. Edito classes can be taken in any sequence; thus the books (text and exercise book) are used for several terms. Each Edito class covers a different thematic unit.
