Personal Best is a six-level general English course for today’s busy young adults who want to maximize their English language learning experience. Developed with series editor Jim Scrivener, internationally renowned teacher trainer and presenter, it brings together his focus on practice as a driver of improvement for students, and a 21st-century course package with an integrated web-based video show and the Personal Best Language App.

Language Grammar is presented in stand-alone lessons, separate from skills work. The pronunciation syllabus focuses on connected speech to help with recognizing and producing language; while lexis is prioritized, with two or more vocabulary sets per unit, used in discussions or other tasks.

Comprehensive skills syllabus: Reading and listening skills pages develop learner skills and strategies; and students are challenged to use selected functional language to improve specific speaking or writing skills. Speaking and writing activities have clear task goals and cumulative aims.

With Personal Best students will:

reach their full potential, as the course focuses on the vital role of practice.

develop a variety of sub-skills, presented in the Listening Builder, Conversation Builder, Text Builder and Skill boxes.

be challenged to make use of selected functional language to improve specific speaking or writing skills.
