With insight your students get an insight into the world with topics that will inspire them to think. insight is packed full of interesting texts on subjects ranging from the science of taste, to immigration in New York, and the history of the BBC. These thought-provoking topics and information-rich texts will challenge your students' opinions, educate them about the world they live in, and inspire classroom and online discussion. Texts include an interesting fact or nugget of information that your students will want to tell their friends and family about, helping them remember the lesson and the language points that were covered.

insight provides your students with an insight into language with a syllabus that challenges them to go deeper. Your students will learn about the rules of vocabulary such as collocation, word building, register and connotation and gain a deeper awareness of vocabulary. The vocabulary insight pages will develop your students' dictionary and thesaurus skills enabling them to work more independently. Students can further practise their vocabulary, grammar and skills online.

insight prepares your students for a life of learning with a focus on developing their skills and encouraging autonomous learning. Progress check pages in the Workbook allow students to reflect on and take responsibility for their learning. Strategy boxes with step-by-step guides in every unit develop your student's core skills, while a dedicated double page writing spread in every unit with a step-by-step writing guide builds good writing habits.

The interactive tools in the Online Workbook Plus and Online Practice encourage students to independently review their learning. Students can practise an activity as many times as they need, see the right answer and check if they answered correctly.

Further tools such as automatic marking, the integrated Speak and Record feature that you can listen to and mark, and instant links to the Grammar Reference and Wordlists, enhance the supportive environment for independent learning beyond the classroom.

The Online Gradebook keeps you up to date with students' learning, making it easy for you to track and report on progress, and letting you quickly identify strengths and weaknesses within a class.
