In more detail
Each LEAP chapter is built around a Warm-Up and Final Assignment that help students progress towards greater autonomy. Challenging texts, listenings, videos, and tasks engage students to reflect using critical thinking strategies. The series focuses on general language skills while emphasizing vocabulary development.
The series includes:
interesting and thought-provoking themes and texts, connected to various disciplines, that prepare students for study in English in Canada or internationally
tasks throughout the books which elicit critical thinking from students to help them develop as independent learners
key words and vocabulary from the Academic Word List (and Longman 3000 at Level 1), which are highlighted in two (or three) Vocabulary Build sections in every chapter, giving students systematic opportunities to expand their vocabulary
