Features

  • Engaging listening segments allow students to explore timeless themes such as love, volunteering, and childhood memories.
  • Pre-listening activities help focus students on the theme and vocabulary, while post-listening exercises provide practice with language functions, pronunciation, grammar, and critical thinking.
  • Listening for Inference activities encourage students to infer the speaker's meaning, listen for attitudes and feelings through the tone of voice, and interpret context.
  • Unit wrap-up activities allow students to compare and contrast the three listening selections, analyze the linguistic components of each genre, and create a text of their own.
