There are ten units in the Student's Book. Each unit is divided into five sections (A-E), with a Vocabulary insight page and a Review. After every two units, there is a Cumulative review. At the back of the book, there is a ten-page Vocabulary bank.Lesson A: Reading and vocabularyEvery unit begins with a Reading and Vocabulary lesson which introduces the topic of the unit in an information-rich text. The reading text also contextualizes two vocabulary sets which are recycled through the rest of the unit. One of these is a Vocabulary insight ( V insight) set which explores language in greater depth. These lessons always begin with a speaking task which gets students thinking about the topic of the unit and expressing their own ideas. At the end of the lesson another speaking task allows students to react to the text and demonstrate their understanding of the issues raised.Lesson B: Grammar and listeningLesson B picks up on the grammatical structures that students met, but may not have recognized in the reading text in section A. the guided discovery approach to grammar ensures that students actively engage with the new language. Students analyse examples, complete rules or answer questions about the grammar which helps them to focus on the new structures, their meaning and use. A final speaking activity allows students to use the new language in a personalized and productive way.Lesson C: Listening, speaking and vocabularyLesson C offers students opportunities to practise the grammar and vocabulary from the previous sections. Listening activities contexualize a new vocabulary set which is recycled through the rest of the unit. Students are encouraged to react to the topic of the listening and exchange ideas and opinions. This lesson also presents functional language through several model dialogues, as well as controlled and free practice.Lesson D: Culture, vocabulary and grammarLesson D introduces students to the culture of the English-speaking world through a text on the customs, traditions and history of English-speaking countries. There is always a cultural comparison element, which encourages students to think about similarities and differences with their own culture.Lesson E: Writingsection E always presents a model text which students analyze for the language, structure andformat used. There is a always a writing strategy box on these pages which develops key elements of the writing process, for example, planning, brainstorming, deciding on register, etc. These pages also include a step-by-step writing guide which takes students through the process of generating ideas, planning, writing and checking their work. The writing task lets students use the language taught throughout the unit in a personalized, productive and creative way.Vocabulary insightThis page raises awareness of how language works by developing a deeper understanding of a language point introduced earlier in the unit. There are also activities which build students' study skills, including ways of recording vocabulary, using a dictionary or a thesaurus. Through a series of strategies students learn how to use reference sources that can help them with their learning now and in their future life.ReviewThe review gives students another opportunity to recycle and check how well they know the vocabulary and grammar they have learned in the unit. Students get marks for every completed review, so it is easy to monitor progress through the book.Cumulative reviewThere is a two-page cumulative review at the end of every two units. This reviews key language and skills from the Student's Book up to that point through a series of skills-based tasks. Each Cumulative review includes listening, speaking, reading, use of English and writing exercises.Vocabulary bankThere are two cross-references to the Vocabulary bank from each unit. Each Vocabulary bank presents and practises two vocabulary sets that are topically related to the unit.
