The main aims of the series are:

  • the acquisition of basic knowledge, skills and communication strategies so that students will be able to function satisfactorily in different linguistic and cultural environme­nts. This objective is accomplished through the systematic development of all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking through authentic & semi-authentic texts
  • the development of the students' personality as a whole through topics aiming at their social development and in combination with information and knowledge that comes from other school subjects
  • the use of the English language for searching, locating and understanding information that is related to the students' needs and interests and which they will use in order to achieve different communication objectives
  • the development of learning and communication strategies with particular emphasis on the development of students' linguistic awareness and the promotion of 'learning how to learn' techniques through real life experiences so that students can become autonomous learners
  • the enhancement of students' ability to function as mediators between monolingual individuals or groups
  • the students' familiarisation with different cultural environments and different social behaviours
  • the provision of a variety of activities which will activate learners' motivation to learn
  • the systematic recycling, consolidation and extension of what they are taught through regular revisions.
