Fully revised for first examination in 2021 with an emphasis on 21st century skills.

This coursebook follows an activity-based methodology for classroom use. It is clearly organised into three parts: text types, global issues and assessment. The first section defines and analyses a range of literary and non-literary text types. The global issues section integrates all three areas of exploration from the revised syllabus (readers, writers and texts; time and space; intertextuality), into meaningful units. This section promotes classroom interaction and results in work that can feed into formative assessment and the learner portfolio. The coursebook includes curated video links and samples of Paper 1, Paper 2, the individual oral and the higher level essay. Higher level extension activities are included in each unit. The new key concepts and guiding questions are integrated throughout. Answers are in the teacher’s resource. This resource is the perfect companion to the Cambridge Topics in English Language series, which contains introductory study guides to major scholarly topics in the fields of English linguistics and stylistics.
