Student-Centered for Maximum Student Involvement 

This six-level General English course is designed with student output at the heart of the learning process, through a task-based approach for all four skills, as well as grammar and vocabulary acquisition. 

Teach Your Way

Lessons in  Connections  can be completed in the order presented, or in any other order that best suits your curriculum or teaching style. Each lesson is self-contained, and while all lessons are cohesive and relate to the unit theme, the separate lessons don?t rely on each other, allowing for greater teaching flexibility. 

Vocabulary Approach 

Connections  offers ample vocabulary practice and support, and its approach to vocabulary acquisition varies according to context or specific needs. Vocabulary words focus on higher frequency words from the Longman 9000 list, and are introduced in the context of reading, listening, and watching. Vocabulary can be taught prior to a task where the vocabulary is key to comprehension, or will be deduced from context, a necessary skill in everyday life. 

Student-Centered Grammar Approach 

The  Connections  grammar approach is varied in order to meet the needs of different learner types, sometimes inductive, sometimes deductive, and always student-centred.

  • Every unit has two grammar lessons.
  • Each grammar lesson has a related handout, allowing the students additional practice of the grammar notion and to engage in free grammar practice 
An Enhanced Learning Experience at your Fingertips 

Access  Connections  anytime, anywhere on the easy-to-use, flexible and comprehensive  Pearson English Portal  and the  Pearson Practice English App. With their Student Book, students have access to:

  • the fully-interactive version of the Student book;
  • all audios and videos from the Student Book;
  • the  Pearson Practice English  mobile app with grammar, vocabulary, and Useful Language practice.

In addition, the Online Practice gives your students access to instantly-graded activities with supportive feedback.
