The Student's Book has ten units of six pages each, and an initial Starter unit. Each unit covers at least two key structures, ensuring a carefully staged but fast-moving progression, in conjunction with approximately ten target vocabulary items (more in higher levels).

The main grammar structure is presented on the first page of each unit, with an extended or additional grammar focus on page 5. A Grammar Box then breaks the language down into small, manageable chunks to highlight form, after which simple, receptive tasks check students' understanding. Exercises on pages 3-4 progress from receptive and controlled practice, to semi-controlled and freer practice, often leading to a productive speaking or writing task. The last page in every unit offers a final task-based exercise that encourages freer production of the target language. All units are staged to provide three clear levels of challenge and success: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

A variety of listening exercises expose students to the native speakers' accents, as well as providing support for listening comprehension of the target language.

A double-page Review spread every two units reviews and consolidates the language, with a particular focus on a specific area in every level (for example, writing skills development in level 2, and controlled grammar review in level 5); as well as exam-style practice tasks for the corresponding level. Throughout the course, students become familiarized with a broad range of exam task types.

A Grammar Reference section at the end of the book includes all of the grammar structures covered in the level with colorful, easy-to-follow charts.
