Improve grammar: students really can!
By introducing grammar in a theme-based setting, then following up with a wide variety of exercises, drills and online practice, On Track helps students retain and transfer grammar structures effectively in writing and speaking tasks.
Build vocabulary: help students express themselves
With a focus on highly transferable vocabulary items, seen in texts and systematically reinvested in activities, On Track ensures students acquire the vocabulary they need to express themselves both in writing and in speaking.
Develop comprehension: texts students can understand
Reading strategies and vocabulary deconstruction strategies offer students practical tools to facilitate their understanding. In addition, reading texts primarily contain the most frequently used words in the English language.
Reinvest new language: practice, practice, practice!
A wealth of reinvestment opportunities encourage students to reuse newly acquired language in both guided and more open-ended production tasks. On Track: materials designed to lead your students to success!
