Way Ahead

An imaginative reading-based course for young learners

The best-selling international Primary ELT course of all time, Way Ahead has helped children in over 40 countries to learn English. Imaginative and fun, Way Ahead has been updated to reflect the key features of the old edition that pupils and teachers know and love and to include a fresh design with more photographs, giving a more modern look to the course.

At the lower levels, the books introduce a cast of interesting characters who contextualise the language and make it fun. In the upper-levels, new language is presented through a series of motivating and informative topics, and the course develops the skills the children need to pursue their studies to a higher level.
