Active Listening, Second Edition, is grounded in the theory that learners are more successful listeners when they activate their prior knowledge of a topic. Student's Book 2 is intended for low-intermediate to intermediate students. The Student's Book offers 16 task-based units, each built around an engaging topic. Through a careful balance of activities, students learn to listen for main ideas, to listen for details, and to listen and make inferences. Prelistening schema-building activities help students build vocabulary, and listen-again activities provide additional skills practice. A full page of optional speaking activities with pronunciation practice is provided in each unit. Expansion units, with authentic student interviews, offer rich cultural material and provide review. A free Self-Study Audio CD is also included in every Student's Book.
AQA Activate for KS3 is designed to support every student on their journey through secondary science with AQA. This Student Book is matched to the AQA KS3 syllabus, and will spark students' curiosity in science, whilst gradually building the maths, literacy and enquiry skills vital for success in the new GCSEs.
This student text covers the four units needed for assessment: preparing routine business documents; working with colleagues and customers; preparing for work in business organizations and following routine office procedures.
Core vocabulary is explicitly presented, practiced, and applied, so beginners can start communicating immediately. A logical, carefully structured grammar syllabus provides a firm foundation for communicative exchanges. Task-based pair and small-group activities give maximum practice and ample opportunities for personalization. Realistic, task-based speaking, listening, reading and writing activities reinforce grammar and vocabulary. High-interest, cross-cultural topics provide a context for meaningful language learning. Conversation management strategies in each unit give students the tools they need to handle real-life English. Strategy Session review units present and practice important learning strategies that help students 'learn how to learn'.
