Series overview
We started with a question: what makes a good English lesson? Pearson English has been built from the ground up to answer that question, by the people who would know best. We commissioned experienced teachers to author the books, asked Educational experts to review the content, met with focus groups including teachers and students from government, independent and Catholic schools and tested all material in classrooms.
The result is the most comprehensive English series, written, reviewed and tested by English teachers. All texts have been independently audited by practising teachers in over 90 hours of revisions and improvements, ensuring that the final content is uniformly excellent and matches the content and assessment requirements of the Australian Curriculum. And our thorough trials mean that you can be sure the texts, tasks and activities are classroom ready.
There is a varied range of texts covering traditional and nontraditional options, including fiction and nonfiction, new articles, letters, advertising, visual prompts, graphic novels, animations, manga, poetry, short stories and plays which also include Australian Aboriginal storytelling and Asia-Pacific literature.
