Each chapter includes three authentic reading texts on a contemporary topic, reflecting real academic reading tasks and presenting a variety of styles and points of view. Students refine their knowledge of grammar notions to build accuracy , which they apply in writing tasks, and learn mostly academic vocabulary in focused Vocabulary Build sections. Focuses on skills (listening/speaking) develop students language strategies, which they apply first in the Warm-Up Assignment and then in the Final Assignment. An explicit focus on a critical thinking strategy in each chapter is reinvested through activities that foster reflection, analysing different points of view and synthesis. A models chapter provides students with guidance and examples for writing the different types of texts featured in the chapters.
