Achieve 2nd edition provides thorough test preparation, without sacrificing interest or systematic review of students’ language. A variety of task types and learning strategies makes Achieve 2nd edition ideal preparation for school-leaving exams – while boosting students’ overall language level. Reading strategy boxes, for example, include tips on scanning, inferring, and interpreting, and the exercises that follow practice each strategy.

An optional Skills Book at levels 1 and 2 provides the flexibility to go beyond exam preparation, offering step-by-step practice in writing, listening and speaking. The Teacher's Resource Center provides worksheets and practice tests to further consolidate students' language and practice exam skills (click on the Teacher’s Resource Center tab for more information).

Achieve 2nd edition offers real appeal to older teenagers. Reading texts have been specially written for this age group and are new for the 2nd edition. In a magazine style, and covering a wide variety of academic disciplines and media, they are written from an angle that relates contemporary topics to teenagers’ lives. While reflecting the layout of university exams, they also help teachers to make lessons informative and engaging, and make reading more motivating than in many other upper secondary courses.

The course and unit structure is straightforward and requires minimal teacher preparation time. The progression sets out achievable goals and gives students a real sense of progress.

The ‘Focus on’ and ‘Get it right’ boxes encourage self-correction in areas such as false friends and phrasal verbs, while the integrated Workbook, plus 26 pages of reference material on grammar and vocabulary, help students to revise more effectively.

The design has been updated for the 2nd edition, and 50% new content offers a fresh look.
