Designed for students moving on to academic studies or for those on a foundation programme, the series focuses on improving students' academic skills by:

  • Developing the specific skills required for academic studies through a wide range of topics relevant to higher education.
  • Exploring strategies to help students with new vocabulary, and to record, vary, and build their vocabulary.
  • Offering guidance in undertaking research, and in acknowledging sources.
  • Providing plenty of guided practice as well as freer practice to encourage learner independence in both pdf and word format for adapting to individual class needs.
Teacher's Guides are available at each level, with lesson notes, background information, answer keys to the Student Book activities, and photocopiable extension activities.
