Bright dynamic activities grab students’ attention!

Striking visuals grab students’ attention and a rich offering of content and activities keep students motivated. Video clips integrated into every unit bring real world English into the classroom and provide students with models for speaking and pronunciation. The online Practice Kit also offers media rich content with more never seen before videos. Grammar animations make rules and structures more memorable and new Puzzles and Games pages at the end of every unit offer a fun way to consolidate the language.

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.
