Book - Listening and Speaking
  • 8 units per level
  • Focus on Topic: each unit begins with a speaking exercise with questions that draw students into the topic and initiate critical thinking, encouraging students to make a personal connection.
  • Focus on Listening: a listening exercise with two contrasting and thought-provoking authentic listenings to stimulate students intellectually. A comprehension exercise, which can be supported using students’ notes, reinforces meaning and pronunciation.
  • Explicit skill instruction and practice: step-by-step practice allows students to exercise critical thinking and analytical skills.
  • Pronunciation and speaking skills sections expose students to the sounds and patterns of English and to functional language allowing them to express ideas at a higher level.
  • Focus on Speaking: productive vocabulary targeted in the unit is reviewed and expanded on in a creative way. Grammar structure is practiced to prepare students for the final speaking test.
  • Group Unit Project: a group unit project that further prepares students to engage in real-world activities. Unit projects incorporate online research to build students’ digital literacy skills.
