Real English in your classroom


SpeakOut 2nd EDITION

SpeakOut 2nd edition is a comprehensive eight-level general English course for adults that has been developed in association with BBC Worldwide and BBC Learning English. The course integrates authentic video into every unit and builds the skills and knowledge learners need to express themselves confidently in a real English-speaking environment.
Completely aligned to the Global Scale of English, this edition has striking visuals, motivating reading and listening texts, engaging video clips and a large bank of additional practice material.

What are the benefits of SpeakOut 2nd edition ?



New design

We've improved the overall design of the components and pages, refreshed the photos and illustrations, and selected dramatic images to introduce each new unit. Great images motivate learners, and provide excellent prompts for language activities.


Reading & Listening Texts

We've broadened the range of texts to reflect the types of texts learners read outside the classroom. Listening texts are also more authentic and we've included a wider variety of international accents.



BBC Video Clips

The BBC video clips in each unit are unique to Speakout. We've retained the most popular clips and included some wonderful new material from the BBC to engage and motivate learners.


Pronunciation Sections

We've developed a stronger pronunciation syllabus with a wider range of pronunciation features.


SpeakOut is aligned to the Global Scale of English


The Global Scale of English is the first truly global English language standard, allowing teachers to more accurately and easily measure learner progress.

Based on research involving over 6000 teachers from more than 50 countries, it extends the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) by pinpointing on a scale from 10 to 90 what needs to be mastered for the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing within a CEFR level, using a more granular approach.

Specific GSE resources help teachers select the right learning objectives, grammar and vocabulary required for learners to move onto the next level.

It's a more effective way of selecting the right lesson, course materials or assessment at the right time.
