Build Up
Building up to competence in English

A structured approach builds up functional competence
The two-step presentation of grammar, the focus on vocabulary and the systematic recycling of language helps students build up confidence to use English correctly in practical everyday situations.

Topic-based vocabulary
Both the Student’s Book and the Workbook, which includes a Vocabulary Builder, pay special attention to the acquisition and recycling of topic-based vocabulary and encourage students to build up a practical wordbank.

A course that answers a variety of student needs
Build Up is ideal for groups with students of mixed ability. The Workbook exercises come in three levels, and alternative Basic Practice books allow students to follow the core material at a simpler level. The Teacher’s All-in-One Pack offers teachers practice materials and tests at different levels of difficulty.

English across the curriculum
Build Up uses the English language as a means to explore topics connected with the student’s own experience, and includes cultural aspects of the English-speaking world and other school subjects such as history, geography and science.

CEFR and language portfolios
The My Portfolio feature in the Student’s Book and Workbook, and the guidelines and practical assessment and evaluation resources in the Teacher’s Manual, make Build Up perfectly compatible with working with language portfolios and the Common European Framework recommendations.

Best multimedia and teacher support materials available
The Teacher’s Manual and the Teacher’s All-in-One Pack provide over 200 pages of teaching resources. The unique Digital Teacher’s Pack provides digital resources for PCs and interactive whiteboards.
