  • Search and Think exercises invite students to revisit reading and listening texts to analyze grammatical structures and vocabulary in detail
  • Phrasal Verbs texts revise phrasal verbs that students already know and introduce new ones in context
  • Your story tasks allow students to think about how lessons relate to them personally and share their ‘story’ with others
