  • Image 1

Product Description

Tailored to today's learner, simply look up your lessons on the publisher website to practice with games and quizzes, review vocabulary with digital flashcards, or listen to supplemental audio downloads for practice on the go.  Learners encounter a four-part structure in each lesson which effectively teaches and reinforces vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, and speaking skills.
Presentation: words and phrases are presented first, followed by sentences and conversations. Grammar is presented in a relevant context with clear explanations and comparisons to what the learner already knows, while examples reinforce vocabulary.
Practice: learners practice with written, audio, and interactive exercises. Cumulative exercises recycle material to move language from short-term to long-term memory.
Expansion: learners encounter new vocabulary in controlled contexts, but as the course progresses, less predictable contexts are used, expanding abilities to handle language in a more natural manner.
Review & Reinforcement; each dialogue, example sentence, and practice exercise, reviews previous content while putting new material in context.

This course includes 10 lessons that includes specific grammar and vocabulary building and practice, as well as workout and synthesizing exercises that help you put what you've learned together. Two quizzes are included for mid-way through the course, and after you complete the course.  This "Essential" package includes a book with 10 lessons and additional review space; a blank notebook for your notes; 3 audio CDs with vocabulary, dialogues, audio exercises and more; and access to the free online learning website.

  1. An OK product 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 09/17/2012

    This is a good product but not enough to go through a whole year. More like a semester. So you will need to add to it or plan for a short term. However, it is a very good product for the price.
