Join Development Editor Lewis Thompson and author John Hughes to learn about what’s new in the fourth edition of World Link, National Geographic Learning’s best-selling integrated-skills program from young adults and adults. Lewis will describe the research-based engagement that informed the revision: what has made previous editions of World Link so popular with teachers and learners world-wide and what they wanted more in the new edition. John will then introduce some exciting new updates like the new ‘Global Voices’ video program, the ‘Active English’ sections that build student confidence when communicating, and World Link’s greater focus on achieving ‘Can do’ language goals to increase learner motivation. Audience questions and participation are encouraged.
