This is the fourth book in a six-level integrated-skills course based on the CEF 'can do' objectives. Students get lots of grammar and vocabulary practice, and develop good study skills. The reading texts, based on contemporary topics, are taken from authentic-style sources such as magazines, newspapers, websites, etc. and practice reading for the main idea and key points, and extracting relevant information. Activities vary from gap filling and matching to open-ended questions.
The Student Book comes in two versions: Student Book only and Student Book with DVD Pack. Other components for students include Workbook, CD-ROM Pack, and DVD. The DVD contains parts of films and TV programs which provide further listening practice.
The Teacher's Book includes teaching notes, photocopiable activities and DVD worksheets. Fully editable tests are available on the Test Master CD-ROM. The companion website provides more practice with photocopiables and webquests.
