The Listening & Speaking Student's Book is carefully structured to practice each of these skills.
The listening sections provide regular opportunities for discussion and interaction, with activities to practice global and
close listening skills, as well as chances to critically examine the ideas in the text.
Speaking is split into three main parts; grammar, punctuation and speaking. This culminates in a final, realistic, productive task
that gives students the opportunity to use their new skills in a meaningful exercise.
Packaged with an online Digibook access code, along with a digital version of the text, the students also have access to a wealth of information and activities, including audio files, useful
language, dictionary definitions, videos and progress checklists.
