English Language Teaching - a unique approach

ELT teachers looking for new course material and resources to engage and support learners are invited to take a look at Unlock, Cambridge English Empower and the Cambridge Learning Management System from Cambridge University Press’s ELT group.

Unlock combines thought-provoking video from Discovery Education with carefully scaffolded exercises and a fresh approach to critical thinking skills, enabling learners to develop the academic skills and language they need to succeed in their studies.

Cambridge English Empower is a new general English adult course combining course content from Cambridge University Press with validated assessment from Cambridge English Language Assessment. This unique mix of engaging classroom material and reliable assessment, with personalised online practice, enables learners to make consistent and measurable progress. 

The Cambridge Learning Management System (CLMS) is a robust platform that holds course content, materials and administration in one user-friendly online system. It allows teachers to easily and securely manage classes, track and comment on their students’ progress and highlight areas of strength and weakness for ongoing performance improvement.

Support for teachers

Commenting on the show Linden Harris, Deputy Managing Director, Education, at Cambridge University Press, said: ‘We are looking forward to BETT and to showing schools how our resources can support them, particularly as digital education continues to evolve and grow in importance. As a lead educator in the UK and across the globe, we are keen to support teachers as they work to inspire and engage learners – particularly in England this year where we’re supporting teachers and learners at a time of major curriculum reform, driven by a simple goal of creating innovative products which will ignite brighter thinking and learning for all.”
