pronunciation ( modern RP)
2. Speaking tasks are designed to enable you to:
make small talks without hesitations.
answer questions in the present (wh questions, yes/no questions, tag questions & alternative questions).

perform language functions (giving advice, making requests, expressing wishes, reminding people, giving orders and instructions, asking for permission, expressing regret, making suggestions, … etc.).
How to Use this Course?
You will read and listen to the story three times to get a good grasp of it. Then, you will listen to the story without reading the written text and do the activities. The listening activities will help you to acquire and consolidate the vocabulary, the grammar and the pronunciation. Next, you will answer questions about the story in the present and the past. You’re given ten (10) seconds to think and answer each question before the answer is displayed. The last activity will give situations taken from the story to practise conversational English.
