Lead your students to success!
Spark your students’ interest
Appealing themes such as “Interactive Adventures,” “CSI,” and “Pushing Limits” will get your students on board for English class. It’s much easier to help students progress in their learning when they’re motivated.
Improve students’ grammar? Yes, you can!
With more than 120 pages devoted exclusively to grammar, On Track ensures that students study specific structures, practise them in varied types of exercises and then reinvest them in open-ended writing tasks. Grammar activities are also integrated in the theme-based units so that students see structures in context. On Track has everything students need to understand grammar and to apply it effectively in writing and speaking tasks.
Get content that’s within students’ reach yet challenging
On Track features texts made accessible through the use of high-frequency words and specific preparation tasks. The material also includes watching and listening activities that help students understand authentic media texts. Text models and a step-by-step approach to final tasks offer support for writing. More structured options for all oral-interaction tasks ensure even weaker students can interact orally. Meanwhile, stronger students will find writing and speaking challenges in the Go Further sections. All the content is geared toward supporting students in their learning, building their self-confidence and ensuring they can all benefit from the material, whatever their level.
Get materials that fit your teaching style
Maybe you like to start with your favourite theme and integrate grammar and writing activities when the time is right? Or maybe you prefer to teach grammar explicitly and then have students apply what they have learned in a theme-based context? On Track offers you the flexibility you need to make the right choices for your class and for your teaching style.
