Helbling Languages

SURE is a new 4-level course book by successful author team Martyn Hobbs and Julia Starr Keddle for today’s digitally native and globally aware students.
SURE presents appealing, contemporary themes integrated within a grammar syllabus aligned with the CEFR and Cambridge English (Key, Preliminary and First) and Trinity (ISE Foundation, I and II, and GESE) exams.
SURE is the result of extensive research carried out with students and teachers.
SURE is an effective tool for the classroom which also allows students to learn autonomously at home.
SURE guarantees a smooth and systematic start to each level thanks to its unique syllabus which revises previously learned language through a range of fresh new topics.

Intermediate Video: VIEWPOINTS


Sure Pre-Intermediate

SURE Intermediate Student’s Book features 12 Viewpoints - short films of young people’s points of view engaging in pacey, spontaneous conversations.

Viewpoints gives students a unique opportunity to experience English in real time with real accents.

Students are helped to notice key features of natural spoken English such as repetition, hesitation, repair strategies, agreement, disagreement and facilitating techniques.

Viewpoints helps students make the transition from bystander to protagonist, by focussing on essential B2 skills and strategies. By the end of the lesson students are primed to film their own short conversations.
