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.
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 e-space platform. With their Interactive Student eBook (with Digital Resources), students have access to:

The Workbook and the Student Book: a Perfect Pair!
By providing extra reading, listening, writing and speaking written exercises, the workbook is the perfect companion to the student book.
