Get ready for academic study and the workplace of tomorrow

NorthStar builds language skills while developing the 21st century skills students need and exploring a topic in depth. Activities are well scaffolded and support students to become critical thinkers and build the real world spoken language and writing skills necessary to survive in higher-level academic courses.

Immerse yourself in the topic

Research shows that students learn language better when they use it to study something else. In NorthStar, each unit explores a different thought-provoking theme (across both strands) so learners study a topic in depth.
