About the series

PruQuest English is a communicative course that has been designed keeping in mind the increasingly dynamic role of the English language in today’s world. The course offers original stories and poems that are based on the themes listed in the National Curriculum Framework 2005. The learner as well as the educator has the opportunity to exploit the course on multiple levels.

Main features of the series

  • Multiple Intelligences: The course offers a variety in the components that have been formulated keeping in mind the different modalities that the learners may use to acquire language.
  • Higher-Order Thinking Skills: The questions pertaining to higher-order thinking skills persuade the learners to think beyond the text, which helps them learn how to discern and focus on the profundity beneath the superficial.
  • Life Skills: The questions pertaining to life skills enable and, more importantly, empower the learners to apply the heuristic messages of the text to their own lives and the world around them.
  • Formative Assessments: The tasks of formative assessments help the teachers assess the learners’ in-process academic progression. This helps the teacher identify the skills the learners have difficulty acquiring. Support can then be provided to the learners, and instructional techniques can furthermore be accordingly modified.
  • Summative Assessments: The summative assessment gives the teacher an evaluative tool to gauge the learners’ academic achievement at the end of the designated instructional period.
  • Assessment of Speaking and Listening (ASL): The primary objective of a language course is to equip learners with a functional knowledge of the language. The assessment of the speaking and listening skills becomes especially important in an ESL context. The ASL tasks in the chapters are complemented by additional ASL tasks, all of which act as instruments for the teacher to analyse the language-learning abilities of the learners.
  • Problem – Solving Assessments (PSA): The activities of PSA aim to provide the learners with the skills of deductive reasoning and critical thinking so that they are able to deal with real-life situations in a more conclusive and methodical manner.
  • Open Text – Based Assessment (OTBA): For overall learning, the development of a learner's systematic, interpretive and conceptual skills becomes essential as opposed to rote memorisation, and the OTBA provides the teacher with a tool to assess these skills.


PruQuest English is a complete course that comprises the following major components for every grade:

  • A coursebook
  • A workbook for further practice and assessment
  • A literature reader to further encourage the students to read and also to introduce them to different types of literature in conjunction with the coursebook
