    Interchange or Top Notch?

    Hello everyone.

    Which book do you prefer?

    1. Top Notch (Pearson - Longman)
    2. Interchange 3rd Edition (Cambridge)

    Could you please explain why or clarify on positive and negative points of each book?

    Everyone's idea is needed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Interchange or Top Notch?

    I've taught New Interchange and then Interchange 3rd edition for quite a few years. It seems a perfect text book for learners of English as a foreign language.

    But recently considerable excitement has grown among Iranian language institutes in favor of the new material--Top Notch.

    Top Notch seems better as far as vocabulary, luxury and surface attraction is concerned. In other areas (sub-skills and skills), they seem to function the same.

    I need teachers' advice & opinion.
