To get their interest, learners first watch a video produced by The Guardian newspaper. Then they get to work on tasks aimed at honing all four English skills. The goal is to nurture competence required by next-generation university students to sort out and communicate information in English.

Authentic videos from The Guardian serve to focus learners on particular issues facing today’s society. Afterwards, they read a passage newly written by the author in clear, concise English. Unit themes include racial issues, how social media affects our lives, women’s lifestyles, advice on job-hunting, and much more.

Each unit has a similar format. The length of the videos, the number of words in the reading passages, and the level of output all increase as students move through the units and through the levels from beginner to advanced.

Beginner Level video length:       1.5-2 minutes

Beginner Level reading passage: 250 words approx.
