Tab 2

English Plus gives students the skills they need to communicate with confidence in English.

The core material is presented in a clear unit structure, and the extensive Options section at the back of the book provides further variety and challenge. Extra material covering culture, CLIL, and vocabulary practice motivates and engages students, and allows teachers to tailor the course to individual needs and abilities.

English Plus places equal emphasis on the development of all four skills – each unit contains reading, writing, listening, and speaking. New language is presented both in context and in tables, to ensure that students fully understand usage as well as form. The Rules section encourages students to think about and complete language rules themselves. Activate and About You exercises then give students the opportunity to use English in a personal way, encouraging them to talk or write about their own ideas and experiences.

Teachers with a mix of both strong and weak students in class get extra flexibility from the Workbook, Tests, and teacher's photocopiable resources. These all contain three levels of material, meaning that every student can achieve a productive outcome, regardless of ability.

With Online Practice teachers can assign different interactive activities to different groups of students, see their grades, track their progress, set up online discussions with their students on topics from the Student's Book, and more.
