For every page in the Student's Book there is a corresponding page in the Workbook full of extra practice of the language covered in the lesson.

The Literature Insight section is made up of a set of supplementary literature lessons which introduce students to classic pieces of English Literature such as Hard Times, Alice in Wonderland and Huckleberry Finn. Each lesson includes a reading text taken from a graded reader ensuring they are pitched at a suitable level for your students, there is also an audio clip from the work of literature, some background information about the author and the context in which they were writing, and comprehension and critical thinking exercises to test students' understanding.

The Pronunciation Insight section offers pronunciation exercises for each unit related to the language covered in that unit. This provides an alternative way to practise the language covered and develops your students' pronunciation skills.

The Grammar Reference section includes explanations of the grammar covered in the Student's Book with extra remedial exercises. Perfect support material for a student who is struggling with a particular grammar point or handy revision exercises ahead of a test or exam.

Assign the Online Practice as homework and take advantage of the extra features to track students' progress, communicate with students outside of class, and improve learning outcomes.

Set writing and speaking practice that you can mark and give one-to-one feedback on outside the classroom to free up teaching time.

Integrated video and audio, and tools such as Wordlists, language bank and Grammar References enhance your students' learning experience. Set up Discussions to engage your students in thought provoking topics based on the Students Book or your own ideas.

Automatically marked activities and the ability to check the correct answer encourages students to independently review their learning. They know immediately whether they have the right answers and can practise an activity as many times as they need, learning from their mistakes.

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. This helps with planning for mixed-ability classes, enabling you to create differentiated learning paths for groups of students.

The Online Practice access code comes on a special card with the Workbook with instructions for students.
