Building block approach develops the 4 skills
A greater focus on sub-skills gives students systematic ways to improve all 4 skills. In every lesson each activity gradually builds on the knowledge and skills needed to successfully complete the final Use it! task and achieve the lesson objective. For the productive skills, writing guides and model dialogues lead students step-by-step towards producing their own dialogues or written texts. There are also more speaking opportunities throughout each unit to build students’ confidence. Finally on-page features such as Key Phrases, Language Points and Study Strategies offer further student support and encourage independent learning.
