The three books in the "Interactions Integrated Skills Program" provide an in-depth coverage of the four major language skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In addition, a strong grammar component acts as a foundation for students to rely on while mastering their new skills. The content and themes found in the new "Integrated Skills" editions are based on materials from the highly successful "Interactions" series. Like its parent series, the "Integrated Skills Program" places a great emphasis on the development of skills and strategies in all language areas. All of the reading selections found in the "Interactions Integrated Skills Editions", are fresh and new, with a wide variety of formats and themes. Each selection is accompanied by a host of reading strategies and skill-building practice activities including guessing meaning from context, reading for main ideas and details, skimming, scanning, and so on. The writing component features a step-by-step approach to process writing and rewriting in a variety of different genres. Grammar is always presented in the context of the chapter theme, and each grammar topic is accompanied by a number of communicative practice activities. Finally, the listening/speaking section features detailed practice with specific listening strategies and includes a variety of engaging speaking activities based on the chapter theme. The "Interactions Integrated Skills Program" also features an exciting video component, with practice activities featured in the opening sections of each chapter.
