With its fresh new look, the third edition of the Summit program helps develop confident English speakers who are able to navigate a host of social and professional situations.
This two-level course provides high-intermediate learners with an integrated set of global communication skills. It delivers immediate, demonstrable results through its goal- and achievement-based pedagogy and continual recycling of language.
The two levels of Summit can be used with Top Notch as the fifth and sixth books in a complete six-level series. Summit 1 covers competencies from B2 to B2+ and Summit 2 introduces C1 competencies in the Common European Framework of Reference.
The entire Summit course can be tailored to blended learning with its integrated online component, MyEnglishLab (access code available separately; not included in the Student Book).
