Description

Academic and Career Success is a four-level reading and writing standards-based English language series for adult and young-adult students, providing the rigor required to help them prepare for college and careers.

The Reading and Writing lessons for each level take learners from beginner level through high-intermediate English proficiency. As the levels progress, the curricular content changes accordingly, with the upper levels incorporating more advanced academic vocabulary and a greater emphasis on language and how to use it successfully.

Features

  • Reading Tips focus students on the academic strategies needed for tackling academic texts
