Features *Students work with a variety of authentic source materials, including selections from college texts, real college lectures, visual materials, and literary passages. *An integrated skills approach weaves together reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities with context-related grammar and vocabulary exercises. *Videos of real university lectures accustom students to typical North American lecture style and natural language. *A wide variety of academic strategies includes listening for emphasis cues, finding the appropriate definition for a word, using examples with generalizations, and more.
