IGCSE English - Second Language

QSE Advanced can be used in class or for individual study leading to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) English - Second Language. All seven tiers of the reading and writing core and extended examination sections are practised -skimming for information, detailed comprehension, information transfer, note-making, summary writing, extended writing in formal and informal formats. There is additional practice in the three Extended Reading sections of the book.

The QSE Advanced Workbook section contains practice material to help students with all tiers of assessment. In addition, the activities focused on other exams will greatly benefit students in their skills assessments.

The audio and video clips and listening activities in each Unit fit all four listening comprehension tiers for the IGCSE with a mixture of comprehension questions and spoken texts (conversations, interviews, monologues, etc.). The six IGCSE spoken tiers are practised in every Unit with many different opportunities for discussion, for example in the Viewpoint, Word Power, Reading, Speak Your Mind, Listening, Teamwork, Controversy, CLIL, Further Discussion and the Unit Summary questions.

The Teacher's Guide and Teacher's DVD-ROM include 20 photocopiable pages of IGCSE examination practice material including specific audio for listening exams.
