A bridge from learning about language and culture to achieving exam success
Bridges offers clearly structured, thematic units that practise all language skills, leading students to a high level of communicative competence in both oral and written work.
Bridges pays special attention to vocabulary development and looks at easily confused words, idiomatic language and word-building techniques. The Workbook includes a unique Vocabulary Builder designed to increase students' wordpower.
Language and Culture
The topics in Bridges are carefully chosen in order to use the English language as a bridge to other areas of the Bachillerato curriculum and to expand students' general knowledge and familiarity with aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture.
Bridges offers thorough, step-by-step preparation for both oral and written examinations. The special exam preparation and practice sections enable students to face their PAU examinations with confidence.
