Hi; I am starting a new tutoring post with a female, adult, ESL student at beginner level and wondered if anyone had any advice about the best textbook to use. Thanks. Liz

You are best going to your local bookstore and browsing there. It's hard to give advice without knowing which part of the world you are in,

There isn't really a best textbook. Just the ones you feel more comfortable using. There are many good, and many more bad ones. I quite like New Interchange 1.

I buy so many e-books online, but always forget about how easy it is to buy physical versions of books online too.

Then a good online browse may help. The books I've used recently have mostly been in American English. I was teaching in Portugal a few years ago, and I thought Cutting Edge (which used British English) was not bad.
