Waylink English presents packages of passages, exercises and other activities all based around a particular topic or theme. The topics are chosen to appeal to a wide audience and different types of learner but generally they have a social, historical, artistic, environmental, technical or other context that resonates with learners.
The thematic learning passages and exercises deliberately span a range of different language levels so that most learner from intermediate to advanced will find something of interest that is both a challenge and a source of motivation.
Some students find that fragmented examples and grammar exercises out of context have little relevance to developing fluent communication skills and a deeper understanding of subject matter.
That's why the Waylink English series of thematic topics should prove interesting and beneficial to a wide range of learners.
