Scaffolds the skills students need for their future

Engaging 11 is a project that helps you teach your students the skills they need for their future, with lots of carefully scaffolded speaking and writing practice so that our English classrooms are inclusive.
The engaging reading texts about timeless real-world issues in British and American English and the double culture spread help us raise our students’ inter and intracultural awareness.
The English+ section at the end of the unit helps us choose the essential content to make sure we finish the syllabus. Subunit 3 has lots of exam-like practice to help students prepare for the 550 throughout the year. Our new Reading for Pleasure rubric helps you develop a love for reading in English.
To guarantee that learning English is a memorable experience, we have also included many digital resources, like the speaking teleprompter, to help students learn in a way that is engaging for them!
