Open World is a new course combining the real-life language and skills needs of today’s English learners with thorough exam-focussed preparation.

The Exam Journey

Exam Training tasks inside every unit familiarise the learners with each exam question-type, giving them the confidence to progress to the full test practice in the Exam Focus folders. Exam tips and facts are presented in the exam folders to give learners essential information and strategies for their exam.

Aim higher

Push Yourself sections help students to stretch their vocabulary beyond the level of the exam ensuring they are not only prepared for the exam, but can also cope in more advanced situations.


Real World usage

The Real World pages add an extra level of authenticity to each unit, giving the learners a chance to demonstrate the English abilities they need to communicate effectively in the open world.


Life Competencies

Each Real World section ends with a link to The Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies, allowing learners to practise life-long skills in English and within the theme of the lesson. Examples of skills identified as life competencies include collaboration, creativity and innovation, social responsibilities and more.

Extra preparation

Open World includes the new English for Spanish Speakers section as well as the new Grammar reference and practice, Phrasal Verbs, a Writing Bank and a Speaking Bank.
