Aim High will help your students succeed as language learners in the classroom, with their homework and also in exams. How will it do this? It uses a structured and progressive approach to vocabulary. Within each unit students are taught the meaning of new words but they also learn how and when to use them. There are useful, everyday words, some from the Oxford 3000™, plus expressions, idioms, phrasal verbs and so on. Essential vocabulary for communicating well in English.

To encourage students towards learner autonomy Aim High has lots of opportunities to develop study skills and learning strategies, plus a Dictionary Corner. The Student CD-ROM, with over 180 varied activities, provides opportunities for self-study outside the classroom. Alternatively, Online Practice gives teachers the opportunity to keep in touch with students outside class. Teachers can track their students’ progress, see their grades, assign different activities to different groups in mixed-ability classes, set up online discussions with their students on topics from the Student’s Book, and more.

As well as adding variety to your lessons iTools digital materials will help you cut down on preparation. Both the Students Book and the Workbook content are included, so it’s ideal for checking homework. And you can add your own resources to use in class too.

The self-check and review boxes will help your students understand how they are progressing. You’ll be able to assess them too with the photocopiable tests for each unit, and the adaptable tests from the Test Generator. Please note, Student CD-ROM and Online Practice are available at levels 1-5 only.
