Features of conversation Course

Listening Skills

Each unit introduces and practices a specific listening skill (e.g., listening for main points, identifying opinions). Listening selections are adapted from authentic sources. They are carefully chosen to engage students and teachers and to stimulate discussion. A wide variety of texts—including lectures, radio interviews, news reports, and informal conversations—ensures students practice listening to a range of audio formats. Listening comprehension tasks provide opportunities for extensive and intensive listening, which becomes more challenging as students move through the series.

Speaking Skills

Each unit introduces and practices one specific speaking skill (e.g., elaborating, managing a conversation). Speaking practice sections in each unit provide opportunities for extended discussion on the unit theme. Abundant opportunities for interaction in pairs, groups, and as a class ensure student participation.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary sections introduce key lexical items associated with the unit theme. The sections also highlight word-building, collocations, and phrasal verbs.

Pronunciation

Pronunciation sections raise students’ awareness of features of natural spoken English, such as stress, rhythm, intonation, and linking. MP3 Component Downloadable audio files (in MP3 format) for all units are available on the . Each selection complements the topic in the corresponding unit, and provides students with opportunities for extended listening practice in the content areas. The listening selections can be used independently, or in a language lab setting.
