Straightforward has come of age and has been treated to a review and an upgrade! Things change so fast these days and become obsolete so quickly that topics, articles and images in this series have been up-dated to make sure your classroom is still relevant to today's world, while digital components, such as interactive whiteboard and online practice material, offer a more blended solution to teaching with Straightforward. And what's more, you, as a teacher, can monitor your students' progress online.
All the teachers' old favorites are still here though, meaning it will still be a joy to teach with. Lessons offer a balanced mix of language input, skills work and oral tasks, with a systematic and extensive lexical syllabus to enrich students' topic-based vocabulary and develop an awareness of lexical patterns. All language points are clearly signposted and scaffolded so there is great clarity of learning progression.
