LEAP 1 Listening and Speaking includes three listening texts per chapter, one of which is an authentic video. Students practise high-frequency vocabulary and learn academic words through focused vocabulary tasks. They review grammar notions that they apply in speaking tasks. Listening and speaking focuses introduce students to strategies in a step-by-step fashion that students apply in warm-up and final assignments. A critical thinking focus helps students reflect and synthesise ideas.
Access to MyLab and eText allows students to consolidate what they learn in class. MyLab provides students with extra online resources and practice in reading, writing and listening. All activities are self-graded, allowing students to get instant feedback and to track their personal progress. Teachers have access to a gradebook to view students' results and progress.
