LEAP 4A Listening and Speaking includes chapters 1 through 4 of LEAP 4 Listening and Speaking
This EAP coursebook includes three listening texts per chapter, one of which is an authentic video. Students practise high-frequency vocabulary and learn academic words through focused vocabulary tasks. They review grammar notions that they apply in speaking tasks. Listening and speaking focuses introduce students to strategies in a step-by-step fashion that students apply in warm-up and final assignments. A critical thinking focus helps students reflect and synthesize ideas.
Access to the e-space platform and eText allows students to consolidate what they learn in class. E-space provides students with extra online resources and practice in reading, writing and listening. All activities are self-graded, allowing students to get instant feedback and to track their personal progress. Teachers have access to a gradebook to view students' results and progress.
