New Open Mind Second Edition

Mind series 2nd Edition is a groundbreaking, communicative course that provides learners with the professional, academic and personal skills they need for success. Not only are language skills developed in the course, but also 21st-century skills that students need in order to have a better awareness of self and society, to handle the demands of their study and learning, and to deal with challenges in their work and career.

Building on the phenomenal success of the original series, the course offers a flexible combination of materials to ensure that students are learning from a variety of sources: content-rich reading texts, authentic video material, Speaking and Writing Workshops, strong visuals, self-study Online Workbooks, projectable Student's Books, Resources Centers for both students and teachers, and topics that get students talking, as well as the exclusive lifeSkills and masterSkills syllabuses.

What makes New Open Mind special?

- Integrated and flexible digital components give users access to everything they need in one place. Mind Second Edition includes an Online Workbook for students, with automatic gradebook functionality; the Presentation Kit, an interactive classroom presentation version of the Student's book; and Student's and Teacher's Resource Centers with downloadable activities, video and audio.

- The groundbreaking lifeSkills syllabus engages students not only in the language they are learning, but in developing their own abilities, helping them become well-rounded individuals for the 21st century. Revised lifeSkills in openMind are newly applied in three domains: Self and Society, Work and Career, Study and Learning, and skills include research, critical thinking, problem solving, self-direction, organization, and collaboration skills. These skills are highly valued by employers, yet rarely form part of students' formal education. openMind helps students develop these life skills and use them in English-speaking situations. All the skills require a certain amount of collaboration, so pair and group work is an essential component of the syllabus.

- The Teacher's Book Premium Pack contains access to the Presentation Kit, a classroom presentation version of the Student's Book that can be downloaded to laptops for projection via interactive whiteboards (IWBs) or projectors.

- Brand new, authentic video footage has been integrated into every unit, and is available to watch online via the Resource Centers and the Online Workbooks, or offline via the Presentation Kit, as well as on DVD, depending on the package.

- The four language skills are systematically developed, not just practiced, through carefully structured sub-skills syllabuses.

- The Resource Centers offer hundreds of resources for self or class study, including downloadable audio and video for on-the-go learning, skills development speaking and writing workshops, with self and peer assessment features, as well as the teachers' test section.

- A revised grammar syllabus ensures that the series is clearly linked to CEFR pre-A1 – C1 levels, and the structure of the grammar sections now uses an inductive presentation. A three-page Grammar Review opens each level of the series, with a revised and enhanced Grammar Reference section at the back of the Student's Book.

- The Starter level features a new studySkills section.
