Welcome to the world of dynamic language learning with "Aim High," the innovative and comprehensive curriculum from Oxford University Press. Aim High is designed to empower learners at various proficiency levels, offering a structured and engaging approach to language acquisition. Let's explore the key features of this esteemed series and the diverse levels it encompasses.
Aim High develops students' knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and study skills encouraging learner autonomy and exam success.
Aim High stands out as a benchmark in language education, incorporating modern teaching methodologies and interactive content to meet the diverse needs of learners. This curriculum goes beyond traditional language learning, emphasizing communication skills and real-world applications.
Aim High is a six-level course that develops language learning through carefully chosen vocabulary (including words from the Oxford 3000™), texts which are interesting, and essential study skills. The Classroom Presentation Tool brings easy-to-use digital features to the front of the classroom for heads-up lessons and the Online Practice (available at levels 1 – 5) provides extra homework activities that can be automatically marked and that teachers can track. Revision and self assessment sections help learners towards exam success and there is extensive testing material too.
Aim High will help your students succeed as language learners in the classroom, with their homework and also in exams. How will it do this? It uses a structured and progressive approach to vocabulary. Within each unit students are taught the meaning of new words but they also learn how and when to use them. There are useful, everyday words, some from the Oxford 3000™, plus expressions, idioms, phrasal verbs and so on. Essential vocabulary for communicating well in English.
To encourage students towards learner autonomy Aim High has lots of opportunities to develop study skills and learning strategies, plus a Dictionary Corner. The Student CD-ROM, with over 180 varied activities, provides opportunities for self-study outside the classroom. Alternatively, Online Practice gives teachers the opportunity to keep in touch with students outside class. Teachers can track their students' progress, see their grades, assign different activities to different groups in mixed-ability classes, set up online discussions with their students on topics from the Student's Book, and more.
Deliver heads-up lessons with the Classroom Presentation Tool. Class audio and video, as well as your teaching notes, are available online or offline, and updated across your devices.
The self-check and review boxes will help your students understand how they are progressing. You'll be able to assess them too with the photocopiable tests for each unit, and the adaptable tests from the Test Generator.
