Optimize is a new, four-level, series of modern textbooks for teenagers, which will be perfect for language schools and private schools, mainly during courses preparing students for exams. The textbook has an organized structure that makes it easier for teachers to conduct lessons, and the topic of the chapters is close to the interests of young people.
The series provides students with a solid preparation for exams, with an emphasis on productive exam skills that are usually the most challenging for them. Talk2Me and the Speaking Test videos help build the confidence necessary for fluent communication and prepare for the speaking test, and the step-by-step approach to learning to write helps them develop this skill on a regular basis. Optimize is also a wealth of digital components that make working with the textbook more attractive and engage students, making it easier for them to acquire new linguistic material.
The new Optimize update edition of A2 and B1 levels is adapted to the changes in the Cambridge Key for Schools and Preliminary for Schools exams, which come into force in 2020. The updated version includes new task types and word lists.
