How does Roadmap develop communication skills?

Each lesson has a clear learning goal and every activity in a lesson is focused on achieving that objective, using carefully structured tasks, language input, plenty of practice, strategies for skills development and a reflection on performance.

The goals are designed to help learners achieve an outcome that they have to do in real life. They allow learners to develop a range of speaking skills, while the grammar and vocabulary input are designed to help learners achieve that speaking goal.
