Spectrum Level 3: A Communicative Course in English

Donald R.H. Byrd, Project Director
Welcome to Spectrum, a six-level course designed for adolescent and adult learners of English.
Each book consists of 14 units, divided into one- and two-page lessons. Each unit begins with a preview page that outlines the functions/themes, language, and forms (grammar) in the unit. A preview activity prepares students to understand the cultural material in the conversations that begin each unit and gives them the opportunity to contribute their own background knowledge.
In the first lesson in each unit, opening conversations focus on comprehension.
Thematic lessons stress productive practice through real communication.
A comprehension lesson offers more challenging input, listening practice, pronunciation hints, and a conversation task. In the last lesson of each unit, reading activities provide practice in interpreting and understanding authentic models of written English. Review sections follow every four to six units, reinforcing material taught in preceding units.
