Description

Unlock is a five-level academic skills course that combines carefully scaffolded exercises, a comprehensive approach to critical thinking and motivating video.

Unlock offers targeted skills development for students in an academic context. Its principled approach to critical thinking skills supports learners by giving them the tools they will need to analyse information, generate ideas, formulate their own opinions and express themselves effectively in speaking and writing tasks. Extensive research means that the content presented to learners is relevant to students’ level and academic needs. Integrated video motivates students to discuss topics and review language learned.

Unlock

Key features

  • Every unit of Unlock opens with a visually stunning and inspiring Discovery EducationTM video (supplied on the Teacher's DVD that is packaged with the Teacher's Book). These are used in every unit to introduce original angles on a range of academic topics. The videos promote discussion, motivate and engage learners, and help to ensure that you are working with materials which lead to real achievements in the classroom.
  • The critical thinking sections in Unlock are based on Benjamin Bloom’s classification of learning objectives (Bloom’s Taxonomy). These sections allow your learners to develop the lower and higher order thinking skills that are essential for success in an academic context.
  • Unlock has been developed using the Cambridge Learner Corpus, Cambridge Academic Corpus, and the English Vocabulary Profile. This guarantees that the language presented to your learners in Unlock is both up-to-date and relevant as it means our authors can see how English is used, identify common mistakes made by learners at a given level, and get additional information on the vocabulary that should be covered at each CEFR level.

It is astonishing how many errors are in the text for Unlock 2. You would think Cambridge did not employ any proofreaders before sending a manuscript to be printed. This proves embarrassing when in class the students notice something wrong. I am sure they wonder why pay so much for a book that is not accurate. Another area where it falls short is the glossary. Logic would suggest that a definition should not contain words that are more difficult than the one being described. CUP has some other form of logic in the way definitions are written. Save trees! Dont print pages that are not usable. Publishers need to make sure that facts are accurate when writing/printing textbooks. All the flashy websites, illustrations and whatnot cannot counteract the distrust caused by text that does not measure up to a basic standard of accuracy.

Its a great value to cover the four skills of language and to train students on how to use strategies in order to pass the IELTS test easily. it also enriches students with the vocabulary required for better communication.
