Differentiation to suit a range of abilities is at the core of the choice of material and accompanying tasks. Checklists and self-assessment tasks encourage assessment for learning. Grammar is integrated into each chapter and reinforced in the topics and tasks. Assessment is incorporated into each chapter leading to an end-of-chapter assessment. Pairwork and Groupwork are encouraged regularly and where appropriate. Peer assessment is encouraged with the ‘swap copies’ signal. Oral Language tasks are integrated in a natural way throughout each chapter.
