Learn to speak English – the STEP TO way

Our internationally acclaimed STEP TO books are specifically designed for students preparing for Anglia English as a Second Language (ESOL) examinations. The ten books range in skill level from beginner to masters and are set against the CEFR (Common European Framework).


Anglia exams measure all four language skills:

  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking

The STEP TO series

The books provide guided test practice for every test section. There are explanations and exercises for essential grammar patterns, collocations and vocabulary. The focus is on personalising these for greater student interest and more efficient retention. Numerous sample compositions are given, and there are step-by-step instructions on generating ideas, structuring the composition, and avoiding common mistakes. Each book has been carefully researched and developed by professional ESOL experts.
