How are the books organized? Each book contains 60 units of vocabulary presentation and practice. Units are one to three pages long.

New vocabulary is presented in manageable quantities for learners. The units are grouped together thematically in modules of four to nine units. At the end of each module there are further practice exercises in the review units. What are idioms and phrasal verbs? Why teach them together?

Phrasal verbs consist of two and occasionally three words: a base verb and at least one particle preposition or adverb.

Many phrasal verbs are idiomatic: in other words, the meaning of the verb and particle is different from the base verb on its own. For example, the meanings of give up and give in are quite different from the meaning of give.
