How does it measure progress?

An automated tool provides analytics and progress reports and gives learners the ability to track their daily performance and focus on the skills they need to improve.

There are summaries and granular data available, giving teachers, administrators, and managers the insight they need to understand their learners' performance and engagement with their course. Then, every three months, students take the Pearson Proficiency Assessment (PPA) to measure how much they have improved. 

What's in each unit?

Each thematic unit consists of 18 lessons, which are based on a specific piece of content (an article, a video interview, blog post, an image, etc.).

Each lesson consists of three or four interactive, task-based activities designed to reinforce what has been learned and highlight areas that need improvement. There’s word bank available for students to practice whenever they need it, as well as an in-depth grammar guide with real-work examples to learn grammar covered in each lesson and practice grammatical structures.
