The Student's Book provides 90–120 hours of teaching material within ten units. Each unit has ten pages, followed by two pages of language reference and revision. After every two units, there is a two-page Gateway to Exams section. This revises and practices the exam techniques presented in the preceding two units.
At the back of the Student's Book there are the Study Skills and Exam Success pages, a list of irregular verbs, and unit-by-unit word lists, as well as a Spelling and Pronunciation guide. The Speaking and Writing banks are useful handy references to guide students doing tasks in these particular skills.
