The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated based on suggestions from teachers and students all over the world. The database also includes the multimillion-word Cambridge Learner Corpus, which shows us how learners at different levels use English, what problems they have, and what the most common errors are at each level. Corpus research ensures that learners using Touchstone will encounter the most useful and widely used words, phrases, and grammar in a range of everyday situations. Corpus research also led to the development of a unique conversation skills syllabus that includes strategies such as how to start and end conversations, how to show interest, and how to ask questions that are not too direct.
