Game Changer will motivate students and help them develop the competencies they need to be the game changers of tomorrow.
This lively English course is aligned with the competencies of the Base Nacional Comum Curricular (BNCC) and is specially designed to help teen students to be an agent of change from an attentive, careful and optimistic look, as it encourages them to embrace diversity and necessary conversations among the entire school community.
With its fresh and fun approach to global real world-topics, Game Changer helps teachers prepare stimulating and easy-to-teach lessons that will ensure students are motivated and engaged throughout the whole school year.
Also, Cambridge University Press has established a partnership with Instituto Ayrton Senna, one of the largest not-for-profit organizations in Brazil, and which has received the seal of approval for the creation of the UNESCO Chair in Education and Human Development for the projects and initiatives developed since 1994 in favor of Education.

See how Game Changer enables Better Learning experiences
Better Learning is our simple approach where deeper insights help shape richer content that drives stronger results.
Designed specifically for Brazil
Game Changer draws on extensive research directly involving teachers and students in real classrooms all over Brazil to identify their top priorities in the Ensino Fundamental 2 English classrooms. We spoke to a number of Brazilian teachers and students to develop a deep understanding of how teachers are preparing the next generation to be critical, creative and autonomous, empowering them to be real game changers.
Aligned to the Cambridge Life Competencies Framework
The Cambridge Life Competencies Framework underpins the syllabus of the four levels of Game Changer, focusing primarily on the Learning to Learn, Critical Thinking and Creative Thinking competencies.

Language is presented in context via a rich variety of real-world topics and each unit culminates in a creative writing or speaking task.
Content focused on cultural, global and real topics that develop 21st century skills
Game Changer units are structured in a way that always contemplate texts on broad cultural themes, cross-curricular themes and linguistic content presented in real contexts.Thus, students are exposed to people and places from all over the world, and ask questions that encourage them to think about the differences between their culture and other cultures, as well as explore international values, preparing them even more for their future as global citizens.
Creating confident, future-ready learners
Game Changer helps teachers to develop learners’ global awareness and encourage a learning mindset.
Motivated and engaged students
Grammar and vocabulary are presented in a clear and contextualized way through dynamic “reading” and “listening” exercises in a wide variety of textual genres. Combining this with a fresh and fun approach to relevant and authentic topics, students see the purpose of their learning and feel motivated to explore and use the language.
Students prepared for life in a diverse and multicultural environment
Game Changer explores a variety of global themes in the double-page “Around the World” section, present in all units. This helps students broaden their understanding of other people, places and cultures, preparing them for life in a diverse and multicultural environment.
Students with critical thinking skills
We often “read” images before we read words. This happens every day with what we see on television, advertisements, internet memes, emoji or other media. By encouraging different responses to visual stimuli, we can help students critically analyze and interpret what they see and develop a deeper understanding of topics. The “Think!” questions at unit openings and throughout each unit encourage students to think beyond the photo or topic and articulate their opinions, developing their critical thinking skills.
