The Four Point series is designed for English language learners whose primary goal is to succeed in an academic setting.The series covers the four academic skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking while providing reinforcement and systematic recycling of key vocabulary and further exposure to grammar issues. In order to participate in academic settings, English learners need focused activities to develop and then maintain their use of vocabulary and grammar. Each book in the series focuses heavily on vocabulary in particular, highlighting between 125-150 key vocabulary items including individual words, compound words, phrasal verbs, short phrases, idioms, metaphors, collocations, and longer set lexical phrases.



The 2nd Edition of Listening-Speaking 2 contains six lectures on the topic within a field of academic study: applied linguistics, geology, economics, history, health sciences, and engineering. The lectures range in length from 11 to 16 minutes in length. Audio files are sold separately. The exercises practice an array of important academic listening and speaking skills, including making presentations, and also reinforce vocabulary and reading and writing skills. Each unit includes activities based on the in-class interactions students will encounter in academic settings–including making impromptu and prepared presentations, debating, participating in group discussions. Toward this end, video scenes (available on the companion website) for each unit model student behavior when working in groups and incorporate key words and phrases typically used when working in groups. By addressing the breadth and depth of listening and speaking tasks required in academic settings, students will grow confident in areas that build the fluencies needed to succeed in their academic endeavors.



This version of the second edition has no new content but is simply not packaged with the audio. The audio that was previously included in the product in CD format must now be ordered separately as an audio download.
