Speakout Upper Intermediate Second Edition Student's Book with DVD
by Clare / Eales / Parson et al Published by Pearson
Speakout is the English language course that includes video content from the BBC to engage students and make teaching easier.
It follows a balanced approach to topics, language development and skills work. Speaking activities are prominent, but not at the expense of the other core skills of reading, writing and listening, which are developed systematically throughout.
New design: We've improved the overall design of the components and pages, refreshed the photos and illustrations, and selected dramatic images to introduce each new unit. Great images motivate learners, and provide excellent prompts for language activities.
Reading & Listening Texts: We've broadened the range of texts to reflect the types of texts learners read outside the classroom. Listening texts are also more authentic and we've included a wider variety of international accents.
BBC Video Clips: The BBC video clips in each unit are unique to Speakout. We've retained the most popular clips and included some wonderful new material from the BBC to engage and motivate learners.
Pronunciation Sections: We've developed a stronger pronunciation syllabus with a wider range of pronunciation features.
Authentic, real world language, challenging activities and recycling of language builds student confidence in understanding context and communication.
Clips from BBC programmes and interviews on the street expose students to a wide range of language and accents, familiarising them with English as it is spoken.
Speakout encourages students to talk and write about their own experiences to help them as they practise.
Clear objectives in every unit help students focus on what they will achieve so they can see how they are improving.
BBC clips are fun for your students - and you - to watch and encourage students to learn.
Speakout gives students practice in working collaboratively and builds communication skills that are essential for study and the workplace.
GSE/CEFR mapping helps students track their progress and see the relevance of what they are learning.
