For example, About you tasks and Talking Points encourage learners to connect their lives to the lesson themes and to share their experiences with their classmates.

Students can explore Shopping in London, the Paralympics, team sports in Canada, British TV and other subjects through the new videos and texts in the revised Culture sections.

The Exam Journey

Prepare’s unique exam journey moves students towards exam success with a two-book approach to each exam level. The pre-exam* level books build students’ confidence, gently introducing the test format and exam tasks. In the exam level books there is targeted practice and training for the exam including a full test at the end of the books.
