Every student needs top class reading, writing, listening and speaking skills to succeed at an academic level. Skillful is a brand new five-level course which focuses on each of these skills to give presentation, instant practice and complete immersion in that language skill. It offers students the opportunity to develop language skills by presenting them with contemporary topics and ideas, while building critical thinking skills that are vital for academic success. The study skills focus adds to learner development, providing students with practical guidance and support, and also building confidence for independent learning throughout a university course.
Skillful is an arena for intelligent thinking, taking students from beginner to advanced level in the CEFR. The series has been carefully compiled to encourage students to think more laterally about the English language, their studies, and the world around them. Each level includes both a Listening & Speaking and Reading & Writing coursebook that complement each other through parallel topics and features. As well as providing the tools for academic success, Skillful creates an exciting, interactive learning environment which encourages student debate.
