Synopses & Reviews
Speaking Naturally is for intermediate and high intermediate ESL/EFL students who are interested in using English in social interaction. Each unit contains: - Presentation of language functions (thanking, agreeing, disagreeing, inviting, etc.) in both formal and informal situations - Informative readings on the cultural 'rules' students need to know in real-life situations - Exercises and role plays for pairs and small groups, to encourage interaction - Short recorded dialogues, which expose students to a range of American accents and levels of formality. Speaking Naturally can be used as a classroom text, as a supplementary text, and for self-study.
