The Big Picture 2nd Edition

  • Levels 6

  • British English

The Big Picture is a highly visual, stimulating, six-level course for adult and young adult learners of English, offering 90 to 120 hours of core classroom material, complemented by a wealth of digital and print resources. The second edition of the course keeps the core approach of the original edition, with real-life, international contexts combined with striking images to engage students. Carefully graded activities give students the support they need to express themselves with confidence.

The Big Picture is about real life. The course aims to make English language learning accessible by grounding tasks in real-life situations. The course also challenges stereotyping and presents positive role models in all of the content. The lesson topics take global situations and cultural material which are both stimulating and immediately relevant to students’ lives. Due to the growing importance of images in today’s digitalized world, we’re all becoming more visually literate. Therefore, images in the course aren’t merely decorative, but play an active role in the learning process. They are used to engage students and develop critical thinking skills by encouraging them not only to describe images, but also to interpret and discuss them.
