Quest Second Edition parallels and accelerates the process native-speaking students go through when they prepare for success in a variety of academic subjects. Quest helps students get "up to speed" in terms of both academic content and language skills.

The four Listening and Speaking books in the Quest series contain listening and speaking strategies and practice activities centered on authentic recordings from "person on the street" interviews, social conversations, radio programs, and university lectures.

Each student book unit focuses on a different area of university study anthropology, art, biology, business, ecology, economics, history, literature, psychology, and sociology.

Each chapter contains five parts that blend listening and speaking skills within the context of a particular academic area of study

  1. Introduction
  2. Social Language
  3. The Mechanics of Listening and Speaking
  4. Broadcast English
  5. Academic Listening

Listening passages and skill-development activities build upon one another and increase in length and difficulty as students work through the five sections of each chapter across the four levels.

This is the intro level student book.
