English World is a visually stunning ten-level course which will take children through from primary to secondary. The four secondary levels (7-10) build on the systematic language development and consistent approach to skills of English World levels one to six whilst also developing important real world skills. 'Check-in' pages prepare students for the unit theme, and discussion tasks get students thinking about the topic and also promote learner autonomy. Comprehension activities place an emphasis on students' personal responses and include critical-thinking questions. KEY FEATURES - Wide range of text types and topics (including cross-curricular topics), including fiction and non-fiction types - Language development: dictionary work, word formation and building - Grammar and grammar-in-use lessons - Listening and speaking lessons - Writing (further extended upon in the Workbook)
