New Matrix is now a five-level series with a new entry level: Matrix Introduction (lower elementary), and Matrix Foundation.

New Matrix still offers the same level of challenge to bring the best out in students through thought-provoking and intelligent topics, authentic texts, and systematic exam training. Regular revision and recycling throughout the course is still a key feature of this new edition. As well as a greater focus on vocabulary, grammar, and culture in the Student’s Book, there are also changes to the other components of the course.

The Teacher’s Book now includes revised teaching notes with more optional activity ideas, and culture and language notes. There is also an extended photocopiable section with communication activities, games, testing tasks, and reading texts.

The extensive Workbook now offers more practice and more exercises. The new exam training bank also has intensive exam practice in the Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, and Upper-Intermediate levels.
