Become

Become is a four-skills series in field-specific English for young adults at the low-intermediate and intermediate levels. Unlike other field-specific series that aim for broad appeal through general-interest topics, Become focuses on individual learners: their interests, their aspirations, their lives. The reading and listening texts and the related production tasks offer the possibility of personal perspectives and responses. At the same time, student-centred activities and materials promote critical thinking and encourage students to become independent learners, responsible for their own success, both in the English classroom and in their chosen fields.

Creating Independent English Learners Across All Fields of Study

Become is a four-skills series in field-specific English for young adults at the low-intermediate and intermediate levels. Unlike other field-specific series that aim for broad appeal through general-interest topics, Become focuses on individual learners: their interests, their aspirations, their lives. The reading and listening texts and the related production tasks offer the possibility of personal perspectives and responses. At the same time, student-centred activities and materials promote critical thinking and encourage students to become independent learners, responsible for their own success, both in the English classroom and in their chosen fields.

  • Become takes a new, personalized approach to field-specific English that is truly focused on the young-adult learner.
  • Become gives students the language content they need, and the independence and confidence to apply it in their own fields of study.
