    You spoke. We listened. 

    We conducted extensive research and input from learners, teachers, and language experts, and their input has helped us shape content that drives results.

    Insights from students

    We asked over 2,000 students from all over the world what topics they would like to discuss in English and in what situations they would like to be able to speak more confidently. The ideas are included throughout the Student’s Book and the students appear in short videos responding to discussion questions.
