Product shot

Search is an innovative and contemporary course which presents English as the international means of communication, showing it spoken by native and non-native speakers of English.

The videos tell the story of Antonio from Latin America, who comes to London in search of his girlfriend, Maria, who has vanished. He is soon drawn into a complex web of intrigue and danger. Antonio is helped by the friends Maria has made at her international language school in London. Search is filmed in London, New York and Latin America.

Search is a structured self-study course designed for the elementary learner giving them essential and practical English. All books feature the characters from the drama, and reflect the real world and professional situations faced by adult learners.
