Helping students develop vocabulary and
grammar and then using them naturally.

Reviews

It’s an interesting way of introducing grammar and vocabulary. The variety of lexical-grammatical exercises means that students have the opportunity to immediately apply and practise the grammar and vocabulary they learned in class. Big pluses are the sections Train Your Brain, Speak Out and Mind the Trap, which give students ready-made patterns of spoken or written words, and avoids common errors.
Beata Trapnell, ELT teacher
Repetitions help graduates build confidence. The Speak Out section proved to be particularly useful in the last repetition before graduation. Tasks, such as word formation, transformation and test gaps correspond to the format of the matriculation examination. Tips on how to write short and longer functional forms with examples also proved to be extremely valuable.
Grażyna Urbanowicz, ELT teacher
Pupils respond positively to short, funny skits on DVD, which are known as Speak Out constructions. The variety of exercises and methods of work make the course dynamic, and lessons take place rapidly and are not monotonous.
Grażyna Urbanowicz, ELT teacher
There are interesting, original, often funny lyrics, where grammar is shown in context. Texts inspire students to further discussion. The book focuses on vocabulary and language functions, which allows students to communicate effectively in everyday situations.
Grażyna Urbanowicz and Lo Kwidzyń, ELT teachers
Exercises that accompany the texts allow consolidation of previously understood vocabulary and structures when working in pairs or in groups. It reinforces self-confidence.
