This discussion text, with topics from all over the world, is designed for elementary and intermediate learners. The topics, which include “The Cashless Society” and “Equal Pay in Sports,” are designed to stimulate students and help them to express their ideas more easily. Starting with a listening comprehension to establish the theme, students go on to express their own thoughts. Next, they learn expressions that will enable them to develop a discussion before engaging in exercises that involve repeatedly expressing their own ideas to solidify learning. This text would be ideal for a listening/speaking class. The teacher’s manual contains a review test for each unit as well as two sets of midsemester and end-of-semester exams.
