We are glad to welcome you back at school. We are writing to introduce our new course book for 11th graders. Our aim has been to provide you with a set of materials that will help you to be the best student you can be. In other words, we tried to present topics and materials that will keep the modern teenager like you motivated, intrested and prepared. Of course, we accept that each of you is unique and a perfect English course is an unattainable dream, however our own experience in the classroom has taught us to value three things above all when working with study materials: reliability, flexibility and credibility. So taking into account the upcoming external independent testing in English, that you will most probably have to take, we did our best to make our materials work for you.
The book is full of critical tools which will help you succeed in your educational career and provide practice in Reading, Listening, Use of English, Writing, and Speaking and all of these skills are practiced at B1+ level. The more you use the book the better prepared you will be for the exam. It provides thorough training in all typical exam skills and tasks, and will cover all the topics and key vocabulary you are likely to meet in the exam.
The book is organized in 6 units, each of which explores one broad topic from a variety of different viewpoints. At the end of each unit, you will find extra practice exercises and exam tasks to prepare you for the test and check your general progress (Self-assessment, Get ready for your test). Also the book comes with an extra-curricula section featuring extracts from original fiction books and exercises helping you check general understanding of the material (Literary Hub). To get some more practice of different skill types there are also two round-up sections for topics covered in each semester (Skills Round-up).
We hope you’ll enjoy working with our book and it will give you all the skills and confidence you need to be successful in your exam!
Best wishes and good luck to you!
Remember: “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.”
