Passages is a new high-intermediate to advanced course with a thematic syllabus that stimulates students to talk and write about a variety of thought-provoking topics. Activities develop fluency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, while presentations of advanced grammar points and vocabulary help students communicate with greater accuracy.
