  • World Class is designed as part of the Oxford Bilingual Journey. Learn more here about how English language teaching and content in English are united in our cross-curricular approach.

  • Learning Situations: Termly learning situations in World Class are structured around a topic question, which help students to reflect on issues and questions that they will encounter in their lives outside the classroom.
  • Competence based learning: World Class ensures that the Key Competences are developed methodically, including thinking skills activities and challenges. Competences are clearly highlighted in the Class Book and explained throughout the teacher’s notes. Competence-based assessment rubrics and Specific Competences tests facilitate implementation of the LOMLOE in the classroom.
  • Continuous assessment: A complete assessment package includes cumulative termly exams. The iProgress Check and Learning Record sections of the Active Learning Kit encourage students to learn independently.
  • Mediation: Mediation activities in every unit ensure the development of this language skill in the classroom. Teaching notes in the teacher’s book include easy-to-understand explanations.
