Practical Writing

What is the approach?

  1. Video introduction. A teacher explains the learning objectives of the unit – for example, to build an online profile and proofread it.
  2. Phone app for vocab. Students can use the integrated phone app to pre-learn vocabulary for the unit through study cards and games. It’s fun and convenient.
  3. Interactive activities. In each unit, students work through 12 interactive activities: exercises, quizzes, tests and writing assignments. There’s lots of practice!
  4. Study sheets. Each unit includes a Resource Bank of study sheets, transcripts and model writing. Learners can refer to it at any time.
