Focus on Speaking (for basic users)
This is a course for adult learners at level Mid-Pre-Intermediate (A2+) to Low Intermediate (B1), who have done a Pre-Intermediate (A2) course. It is built around six main topics – home, friends, money, food, work and travel – which give the context for a series of communicative tasks. Each unit begins with a set of self-study tasks for you to do at home. These tasks are designed to activate some of the topic-related vocabulary you will need for the classroom speaking tasks. In each unit, there is a focus on pronunciation that will show you how sounds are pronounced correctly and how words are linked to sound more natural in connected speech.
The Speaking Course (for independent users)
This course is for adult learners whose level is Mid-Intermediate (B1+) to high Upper-Intermediate (B2+), who have done an Intermediate (B1) or an Upper-Intermediate (B2) course. It consists of ten scenarios which provide you with a context and a role for you to play. You will prepare for the role play by reading the scenario at home and doing some self-study activities about a specific speaking sub-skill. The course pays special attention to pronunciation to help students sound more natural.
