Speak English better with Speakout

Improving your students' oral skills by having them listen to real interviews and documentaries is the Speakout promise. The Speakout approach has proved its worth in every classroom where it has been used: it is sure to please you and your students, too!

More than 90 hours of teaching material

The Speakout Student Book offers 10-12 units (depending on the level), with several sections that address each new skill using a variety of methods, allowing students to find the most suitable way to study and practise. 

The manual is organized as follows:

  • Each unit follows the same pattern, with:
    • An introductory page with learning objectives 
    • Two main input lessons covering grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and skills work 
    • A practical lesson, which develops useful communication skills and includes strategies for developing speaking and listening skills
    • A motivating skills-strengthening lesson based on a BBC DVD clip, which acts as a springboard for further speaking (Speakout) and writing (Writeback) tasks
    • A final page of Lookback exercises
  • The end matter, at the back of each book, includes the following:
    • Language and practice bank, which provides detailed explanations of key grammar points and further practise opportunities
    • Photo bank, which reinforces vocabulary taught in the lesson using memorable images to enrich students' understanding
    • Communication bank, which provides further practice and language reinforcement opportunities, such as through role-playing, information-gap activities, etc.
    • Audio scripts of each class audio, which allow students to do a quick self-check and learn the spelling of words that were spoken in class

BBC videos for authentic spoken English

The Student Book comes with a DVD that contains a wide choice of BBC video clips, plus BBC interviews and scripts. Based on selections from the BBC's rich archives, these lessons are designed to strengthen language knowledge and act as a springboard for further speaking and writing tasks.
