Are you planning to study in English?

If so, you'll have to listen to lectures in English, write essays in English and speak out in classes and seminars — in English. That's not easy. So it makes sense to prepare yourself properly before you start. Study Skills Success will help you develop all the skills you need, so you can feel confident from day one.

What will you learn?

There’s a big jump from high school to university or college — especially if English is not your first language. Teachers won’t be there to help you in the same way. You’ll need a higher level of English for classes and assignments. And to get the best grades, you’ll have to develop new academic study skills. You will learn all of this in Study Skills Success.

How will you learn?

You'll watch videos of teachers telling you what you need to learn, and students explaining their challenges with study skills — and how they overcame them.

You'll do interactive exercises to practise your listening, grammar, reading, speaking, vocabulary... and more. There's lots of variety.

You'll work with real academic texts from coursebooks, journals and websites. This will give you a great foundation for when you start studying.

You'll monitor your progress as you complete each exercise and each unit — so you can see just how much you are learning!
