AN OPEN MIND, A CRITICAL EYE, AND A CLEAR VOICE IN ENGLISH

Perspectives is a four-skills series that teaches learners to think critically and to develop the language skills they need to find their own voice in English.

The carefully-guided language lessons, real-world stories, and TED Talks motivate learners to think creatively and communicate effectively.

In Perspectives, learners develop an open mind, a critical eye and a clear voice. Every unit explores one idea from different perspectives, encouraging learners to evaluate new information, develop their own opinions and ideas, and express those ideas confidently in English.
