Course Plans

Provide a comprehensive course with our ¼ϲͶע worksheets. Each of our evolving course plans and worksheet series can be followed systematically or you can select lessons to use as supplementary material.

Legal English

Level: Intermediate (B1-B2)

This worksheet series is designed for students with a legal background or students who want to develop a higher level of professional English through topics related to law. Students who are preparing for the legal exams or the study of law in an English-speaking country will also benefit from working with relevant academic vocabulary and usage in authentic contexts. The series does not teach legal concepts, but each lesson focuses on a legal theme, for example, copyright, contracts and government regulation, and approaches this often dry content through engaging articles and audio-visual materials that B2 students from diverse backgrounds can understand. Each five lessons create a unit, with four content lessons followed by one assessment lesson. There are twenty-five lessons in the series.
