Four Corners is an integrated four-skills English course for adults and young adults.

Four Corners is an integrated four-skills course for adults and young adults who want to use English to communicate effectively in daily life. Easy and enjoyable to teach. It combines proven communicative methodology with a practical outcomes-based approach. Four Corners features a clear presentation of vocabulary, a thorough grammar syllabus, and an everyday functional language lesson in every unit together with systematic practice of all four skills. Four Corners places special emphasis on helping students become confident and competent speakers of English. Speaking activities at the end of every lesson, tied to clearly labeled measurable outcomes, enable students to see the results of their learning and help them see their progress.

Key Features

The program was informed by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and is carefully structured to develop students’ communicative competence through four connected strands within each unit:

  • Accuracy: drawn from program vocabulary and grammar activities.
  • Functional Language: focusing on practical functional speaking tasks.
  • Skills: using language across the modalities of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
  • Fluency: each unit provides students with opportunities to practice fluency.
