WORDS in PROGRESS

Product overview

Words in Progress is available in different versions. Both the regular and the CLIL and IB version are available in workbook format (A4 size) or smaller (17×24 cm). In the latter case, the larger gaps for the words left blank are replaced by smaller horizontal ellipses, which means that students have to write down their answers in a notebook rather than writing directly in the workbook.
