Coursebook 8 is organised into eighteen thematic units of study based on the Cambridge International English Scheme of Work for Stage 8. The topics and situations in Cambridge Global English have been selected to reflect this diversity and encourage learning about each other’s lives through the medium of English. It presents realistic listening, speaking, reading and writing tasks, as well as end-of-unit projects similar to those students might encounter in the context of a first-language school. After every other unit, there is a literature spread, featuring authentic texts from a variety of sources. CEFR Level - B1
