Student Book

Provides three activities introducing some of the vocabulary and sentence structures that students will hear throughout the unit.

Provides practice in both listening for ideas and listening for details. The activities are building blocks for what will be heard in the rest of the unit.


Highlights key words and/or phrases that will be heard in the listening passages. Students get a chance to hear these words individually and within sample sentences before they hear them used in the main conversation/monolog.

Listening 1 is a conversation between two speakers. It is followed by two different types of listening for details exercises. Listening 2 is a monolog. It is followed by a listening for detail comprehension exercise. Both Listening 1 and Listening 2 build on the language introduced in the previous activities.

Both pages end with Close Up grammar segments that clarify important points or highlight useful information.


Features a video conversation between two speakers which allows learners to observe the interaction of the speakers while listening to the conversation. It uses a slightly different approach to review language from the unit. It is followed by two different listening for detail exercises. The last exercise on the page allows students to role-play both sides of the conversation using a follow-up video.

Summarizes and reviews what has been learned in the unit. The Skills Focus activity focuses on key sentence structures and serves as a mini-review while the Speaking section expands on the review and brings everything together.
