Become 1, 2nd ed. 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.

GSE Level: Skills 44 - 59 (low-intermediate)
