Discovery Workbooks are suitable for both students and teachers. I make these workbooks to inspire and engage students. Each workbook has a variety of activities that make use of text, audio, pictures, and videos to give students the opportunity to fully learn English. The activities allow students to research on their own and become successful learners. To make the best use of the Discovery Workbooks I would advise you to have access to the internet. Discovery Workbooks are designed to take students on a journey through a topic, gradually increasing the difficulty of the material whilst attempting to connect everything together. I find that one Discovery Workbook provides enough materials for around about 2-3 hours of class time or more.
