Have Your Say! provides an intensive focus on communication practice for intermediate students. Each unit covers a theme relevant to students and is introduced with a short listening activity on the cassette (dialogue, news report, interview, etc.). The listening section acts as a springboardfor the unit, introducing the theme, major communication functions, and key vocabulary. The unit then focuses on communication functions with three to four activities practising each function. Also includes activities on idioms in each unit and self-evaluation sections at the end of eachunit.
Irene McKay is a TESL trainer and has taught ESL for over 25 years.
