Speaking, Listening and Writing
is a five-part series of attractive, colourful skills books that can be used either on their own, or to accompany Go Ahead 1 and 2, English Focus, Exploring English, Galaxy or Go Ahead Intermediate. Speaking, Listening and Writing develops students’ language skills gradually and thoroughly, ensuring that their skills keep on improving to Intermediate level and beyond.

KEY FEATURES

• Short, theme-based units
• Well-defined, easily achievable tasks
• Help with vocabulary and key expressions
• Full cues for speaking tasks
• Clear cues and models for guided writing
• Detachable ‘Homework Task’ sheets
• Model answers provided for the teacher.

UNIT FORMAT (Levels 1 - 3)

Each short unit is based on a theme, and students complete a series of well-defined speaking, listening and writing tasks based on this theme. Tasks are easily achievable and students are provided with help in the form of boxes listing useful vocabulary and expressions.

At the back of each book, there is a ‘Homework Task’ for each unit. These ‘Homework Task’ pages can be detached from the book, allowing the student to complete the written homework assignment on the page provided, remove it from the book and hand it in to the teacher.

A separate ‘Student’s Book With Answers’ provides the teacher with model answers to all the speaking tasks, to all writing tasks that are not ‘open-ended’ and to all the Listening tasks (along with the Tapescripts).

UNIT FORMAT (Levels 4 - 5)

SLW4-SBSLW5-SB
‘Speaking, Listening and Writing’ 4 and 5 take the student from early intermediate level (at the beginning of Book 4) to high intermediate level (by the end of Book 5).

As in Books 1, 2 and 3, every unit is based on a theme; each unit contains either Listening and Writing or Speaking and Writing tasks based on this theme. Again, there is an extra ‘Homework Task’ for each unit on a detachable page at the back of the book.

Many units have a ‘Student Guide’ listing useful words and expressions that can be used to help students with the Speaking task.

A separate ‘Student’s Book With Answers’ provides the teacher with model answers to all the Speaking tasks, to all Writing tasks that are not ‘open-ended’ and to all the Listening tasks (along with the Tapescripts).

‘Speaking, Listening and Writing’ 4 and 5 ensure that students’ language skills keep on improving throughout the all-important intermediate level.
