The Instructors Annotated Edition contains the entire Student Edition of this intermediate listening / speaking text plus answer keys, instructions for optimum use, and helpful ideas to help students attain competency in practical aspects of daily life. The included audio transcripts for the two kinds of listening material aids learners' comprehension and expression of the materials.
Instructors will find useful ideas for enhancing students' success as they move from part one with its "cross-cultural anecdote", conversation, and activities to the development of students' abilities to summarize and retell stories, make observations, and discuss ideas.
Answer keys for the comprehension exercises in part two are in this edition, to provide feedback and develop students' abilities to recognize the effective use of language and to make inferences. Instructions for part three aide understanding language in notional/functional categories, and use of them to accomplish practical tasks in role-plays and classroom activities. Finally, you will find pointers for part four's discussion of cultural and practical points of everyday life, and "cross-cultural notes."
