Open Mind

Open Mind opens doors

Open Mind is a ground-breaking adult course that provides learners with the professional, academic and personal skills they need. Not only are language skills developed in the course, but also the important 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.

The course offers a flexible combination of materials to ensure that students are learning from a variety of sources: content-rich reading texts, speaking and writing workshops, high-quality video, self-study Online Workbooks, and projectable Student's Books. The series now comes with new Digital Student's Books, optimised for tablets, for a smart and versatile learning environment. To see a sample of the new Digital Student's Book, click on Unit 8: Stories we tell (pages 92 - 103).
