Real English in your classroom

Speakout is the English language course that includes video content from the BBC to engage students and make teaching easier.

It follows a balanced approach to topics, language development and skills work. Speaking activities are prominent, but not at the expense of the other core skills of reading, writing and listening, which are developed systematically throughout.

Introducing the new Plus levels

The new Plus levels give those students who need it more time to progress and achieve their objectives using fresh material.

Intermediate Plus helps students progress along the intermediate plateau effectively.

  1. It is for new students who are at the upper end of intermediate and for existing students who are progressing through intermediate and need new material to motivate them.

  2. Intermediate Plus extends the vocabulary while covering the same syllabus as Intermediate but with a little bit extra: more challenging areas of language and skills, and more subtleties of meaning in the grammar.

Advanced Plus uses completely new material to expose students to the authentic language that is at the heart of Advanced level learning.

  1. It focuses on nuance meaning, contrasts language and covers more idiomatic language.

  2. Advanced Plus gives students who need longer to be confident at this level the option to extend their Advanced learning.

  3. New design: We’ve improved the overall design of the components and pages, refreshed the photos and illustrations, and selected dramatic images to introduce each new unit. Great images motivate learners, and provide excellent prompts for language activities.

  4. Reading & Listening Texts: We’ve broadened the range of texts to reflect the types of texts learners read outside the classroom. Listening texts are also more authentic and we’ve included a wider variety of international accents.

  5. BBC Video Clips: The BBC video clips in each unit are unique to Speakout. We’ve retained the most popular clips and included some wonderful new material from the BBC to engage and motivate learners.

  6. Pronunciation Sections: We’ve developed a stronger pronunciation syllabus with a wider range of pronunciation features.
