ACADEMIC ENGLISH (for levels above 5.0 IELTS equivalence)

  • Task-based learning that elicits critical thinking from students to help them develop as independent learners.

  • Key words and academic vocabulary from the Academic Word List which are highlighted in Vocabulary Build sections in every chapter, giving students systematic opportunities to expand their vocabulary.

  • Complex reading texts prepare students for university analysis and comprehension, while thought provoking content challenges them to reflect on contemporary global issues.

It provides automatic grading for most exercises, with supplementary student and teacher resources that allow teachers to better track their students’ self-study progress.
