It has a topic-based syllabus with engaging, authentic content that sparks student interest and curiosity. The topics give students something to respond to and a reason to share their own ideas, experiences and opinions. New language is presented and practised within the context of the topic. A grammar discovery approach highlights the form and usage of new structures. An in-depth treatment of the topic allows many opportunities to review and re-integrate previously learned language. There is integrated and systematic practice of all four language skills around communicative tasks. Practice is given in critical thinking skills to encourage students to think in English. Activities feature skills such as analysing, classifying, comparing, evaluating, interpreting and predicting. 'Strategy Session' units help students to develop conversation management strategies - for example to get the information they need and to keep a conversation going. 'Vocabulary Workshops' introduce key vocabulary learning strategies as a way of consolidating each unit's new vocabulary.
