Preface “中階英語聽講練習” is a comprehensive split edition coursebook for students in their second year of vocational high school to develop their listening and speaking skills. The book provides a broad collection of topics based on real-world situations and various activities promoting interaction with peers. In “中階英語聽講練習,” students can use and improve their English skills to build fluency in their everyday English conversations and professional speeches.
Each unit has two main listening texts. For each listening text, students are guided through a set of steps: before you listen, while you listen, and after you listen. These help students learn how to listen and understand spoken English.
After the two listening texts in each unit, there is a speaking section that teaches a grammar point, a pronunciation rule, and a speaking tip. At the end of each unit, students take what they have learned and use it to practice creating a conversation or short speech with a partner. Once they have completed this, they will perform the conversation or short speech to the class. As a final task, students are asked to assess how well they did and how much they learned.
In this innovative way, “中階英語聽講練習” will help students explore the world around them and sharpen their English skills.
