Preparing students to thrive in a university setting

University Success is for English language learners preparing for academic environments. Through five levels, from Beginning to Transition, the course carefully scaffolds skill development to help students become autonomous learners. Students master essential skills and gain confidence in studying academic degree courses taught in English. 

Authentic lectures, readings, and writing strategies created and delivered by professors from Stanford University provide real-life learning experiences. 

University Success offers a blended three-part structure, combining MyEnglishLab and print course for a flexible program that adjusts to the needs of teachers and students and provides opportunities for personalized learning beyond the classroom. Each skill presented in the Student Book is followed by connected activities on MyEnglishLab for well-rounded and comprehensive practice.

Putting students on the path to academic success

  • Two new levels, Beginning and High-Beginning, support lower level students with scaffolding to build their linguistic foundation. 
  • Two integrated skills strands, Reading & Writing and Listening & Speaking, establish the foundation for studying at higher levels. 
  • At the upper levels, the three strands, Reading, Writing, and Oral Communication, continue the intensive skill development with a collection of extensive authentic content, expertly developed in cooperation with professors from Stanford University.
  • The content models the type of real-life learning expected of students studying for a degree.

University Success Reading
The Reading strand provides real-life learning experiences that prepare students to become fluent, automatic, and competent readers who can achieve academic autonomy.

University Success Writing
A strong focus on critical and creative thinking prepares students to approach writing assignments in different disciplines and write in academic degree classes. The Writing stand supports students through the writing process and moves them away from the production of highly structured essays.

University Success Oral communication
The Oral Communication strand provides real-life learning experiences for students who need to achieve academic autonomy.
