Each chapter includes three listening texts on a contemporary topic. The new edition includes an authentic video and an authentic audio in each chapter.

The texts present realistic academic listening contexts, with a variety of styles and points of view. Students refine their knowledge of grammar notions to build accuracy, which they apply in speaking tasks, and learn mostly academic vocabulary in focused Vocabulary Build sections. Focuses on skills (listening/speaking) develop students language strategies, which they apply first in the Warm-Up Assignment and then in the Final Assignment. An explicit focus on a critical thinking strategy in each chapter is reinvested through activities that foster reflection, analysing different points of view and synthesis.
