World Quest combines the drama and excitement of an episodic story, with real world texts and topics to accelerate students' progression.

  • Language Level: A1-B1

Your students will be enchanted by award winning author, Paul Shipton's episodic story at the beginning of each unit and they will want to know what happens next. Written especially for the course, the story introduces key vocabulary at the start of each unit as well as capturing students' attention. Read the stories aloud in class or listen to them on the class audio CDs.

Give your students the vocabulary, grammar and practice they need to progress quickly in English. When students use English in the real world they are most likely to want to talk about their own lives and interests, World Quest provides them with the vocabulary and grammar to do this as well as plenty of practice.

Every unit in World Quest is made up of 3 lessons:

Lesson 1: Strong storylines, written by Paul Shipton, with stunning artwork that appeals even to younger students. The story presents the grammar and vocabulary, which is then practised in the activities. Each lesson integrates work in all four language skills. The lexis and exercises are carefully controlled.

Lesson 2: The reading text provides the context for the new grammar point and new vocabulary. Students are given lots of support to prepare them for the end of lesson writing task. Look! glossary boxes explain unfamiliar words, when needed.

Lesson 3: Students are given plenty of support to prepare them for end-of-lesson writing tasks, including a comprehensive model text. The activities allow students to bring together the language covered in the unit. Lesson 3 ends with a lively song (Levels 1–3) or a culture section (Levels 2 and 3).
