Key features

  • Matrix develops grammar, vocabulary and the four main skills within an exam context.
  • Engaging texts provide authentic input for the development of students' reading and listening skills, and provide cultural information.
  • Each unit is theme-related, with topics chosen for their appeal to 16-19 year-olds.
  • Grammar is presented and practised in a way that allows students to reflect on their understanding of English, and see it fall into place.
  • Exam training is highlighted throughout the course via 'Quick tip' and 'Exam training' boxes which offer students practical advice on developing both study skills and examination techniques.
  • Extensive vocabulary development increases students' active and passive knowledge. Frequent consolidation and recycling exercises build confidence and help students to add interest and variety to their English.
  • Speaking is practised through a wide range of controlled and freer activities, encouraging students both to take part in more structured discussions and to express their own ideas.
  • Listening texts are based on authentic materials and feature a variety of speakers and accents.
  • A comprehensive writing syllabus gives students step-by-step guidance in producing a wide range of text types.
  • The integration of practice and extension material supports mixed-ability classes. It also means that the course can be used flexibly, depending on the number of teaching hours available.
  • 'Let's revise' pages after every two units review language and skills as students progress through the course.
  • A grammar reference and extensive wordlist with definitions and examples give extra support for students and teachers.
  • Matrix Foundation and Pre-Intermediate has 'Culture focus' pages in every unit of the Student's Book, and extra photocopiable resource material in the Teacher's Book.
  • Matrix Pre-Intermediate has 'Reading for pleasure' pages in every unit of the Student's Book. Matrix Foundation has five 'Reading for pleasure' texts in the Teacher's Book.
