English Speaking

Our English Speaking series aims to enhance student’s oral skills. To do so, we have carefully selected various relevant themes with a wide range of useful English vocabulary, sentence patterns and expressions along with pronunciation topics, which are consolidated with valuable listening input. The learning is cemented through a diverse range of activities such as role playing, group discussion and dialogue speaking.


Level 5 - Speaking For Success
Objectives
• To improve students’ speaking abilities on everyday topics
• To familarise students with the correct pronunciation, stress and intonation when speaking English
• To provide a wealth of in-class speaking practice
• To introduce new vocabulary, sentence patterns and usage in context
• To build students’ confidence in speaking English

Features
Each unit begins with a video to warm up students to the topic. Relevant vocabulary and phrases are then introduced, followed by brief matching exercises and speaking practice. Each unit also introduces a pronunciation topic that is important to keep a conversation flowing in its natural form (just like a native speaker), which includes phonics, stress and intonation.

Finally, students have a chance to listen to an interesting short dialogue written by an experienced linguist. This is followed by comprehension questions, role plays and exercises that cover useful expressions, vocabulary and verb tenses to consolidate their learning.
