Each unit introduces the features of each text type and provides focused practice on the planning, organisational and language skills for writing good compositions of that particular genre. The unit ends with a writing task that leads the student through the five steps of the writing process – planning, drafting, revising, editing and sharing.


A wide variety of topics and contexualized exercises ensure that the student’s interest is maintained throughout the course.
