Stage 7 extends learning for intermediate level students. In addition to practising many new words, Stage 7 contains useful phrases (e.g. “a great deal of”) and also sees the introduction of common idioms (e.g. “get on someone’s nerves”). There is a significant amount of new grammar, but there is also a focus on the consolidation and extension of structures first introduced in earlier stages. This stage is appropriate for learners at the higher end of B1 level according to the CEFR, and also those at B2 level.
