With such valuable inside strategies as avoiding a topic politely disagreeing with an opinion, this text decodes the sometimes subtle art of English conversation. Beginning with a warm-up lesson this 12 units book is full of dialogs exercises to work in pairs, they practice the strategy in controlled activities, and finally they put the strategy to use in activities such as role plays. Clarification–this Text/Worbook does not include printed scripts of these listen and respond exercises. The Teacher’s Edition contains the complete listening scripts. The listening exercises are also available on the two Audio CD’s, so the instructor has the option of reading the scripts to the students or playing the Audio CD’s.
