  • Move is a flexible, modular short course, ideally suited to intensive study programs or longer courses with few teaching hours.
  • The Coursebooks are split into three stand-alone modules, each made up of four teaching units and a fifth review unit. Review units consolidate language and vocabulary in new contexts.
  • Each module provides a minimum of 15 hours of classwork, and contains its own Extra Practice, Wordlist and Grammar Reference pages, making it completely self-contained.
  • Teachers can combine the core and optional materials to suit the teaching situation and their students' needs, extending the core material from 15 hours per module (45 hrs per level) to over 90 hours, with extra practice pages in the Coursebook; the CD-ROM; and the optional activities, additional photocopiable resources, and tests in the Teacher's Book.
  • The CD-ROM is ideal for self-study and revision, and compatible with both PCs and Macintosh.
  • Move is directly benchmarked to the CEFR descriptor bands. Learners can check their own improvement and progress with self-assessment checklists.

Topic units focus on current business issues and everyday skills around three areas: work issues, such as stress and time management; travel and communication (with particular emphasis on the internet and IT); and company life, focusing on tenses (enabling learners to discuss routines, past experiences and future plans in relation to their work/company).

Skills units focus on acquiring communication strategies for a variety of work-related and social contexts. Functional language is presented and practiced through dialogs. There is lexical input but no grammar focus in these units.

Learning aims summarize the lesson in ‘Can do’ statements.
A Lead-in Activity at the start of every unit activates the topic by drawing on students' knowledge and curiosity.
Reading texts are recorded on the Class Audio CD for optional extra listening (and pronunciation) practice.
Imaginative skills and vocabulary activities encourage students to personalize the language and experiment with it.
A Language Study section in every unit draws on the reading and listening texts and follows a guided discovery approach to grammar and language subskills, encouraging learners to discover language as they learn. Students can access the Grammar Reference pages at the end of each module for support.
Listening scripts for each unit are located together in the reference material at the end of the module.
Speaking activities build students' confidence through a variety of pair, group and class tasks that take students from controlled to freer practice.
Signposting at the end of each unit reminds students of the extra practice activities on their CD-ROMs.
Extra Practice pages at the end of each module offer a chance for further practice and consolidation of the grammar and vocabulary in each unit. They can be completed for homework or in class, during or at the end of each unit.
Grammar Reference sections, which support the Language Study boxes, can be found at the end of each module.
There is a Wordlist for each unit, with phonetic spellings, at the end of each module.
Communication activities include role-plays where students usually work in pairs and Student A and Student B have different information. Students decide who is A and who is B, read their information on the correct page, then have their conversations.
