                  Great Ideas is a unique collection of absorbing and enjoyable activities designed to improve the listening and
                  speaking abilities of intermediate to high-intermediate students. Students are encouraged to exchange their
                  ideas and opinions about a wide range of topics, including entertainment, current events, employment,
strange phenomena, the future, and advertising. Photographs, advertisements, maps and drawings, cartoons, and excerpts from
magazines and newspapers help stimulate this exchange. Specially designed communication activities motivate students to share
information by providing each student with some information that the other does not have.

The accompanying cassette consists of both scripted and authentic recordings of people speaking naturally, with the normal
pauses, hesitations, and interruptions that occur in everyday spoken language. The Teacher’s Manual gives detailed notes on
presenting the activities, as well as suggestions for follow-up work.

                Listen to Me! Is designed to improve student listening skills. The text offers a variety of real-life topics – inter-
                acting with neighbors, returning to school, making job decisions, health and emergencies, and experiencing di-
                vorce – embedded in a central storyline.

• An ongoing story line provides internal coherence and stimulates students’ interest. Characters and topics that appear in the
    narratives reappear in the exercises, conversations, and even group tasks.
• A host of listening comprehension and listening discrimination exercises foster better listening strategies.
• Task-based final activities encourage students to experiment with conversational language.
• New to the Second Edition: a streamlined, fifteen-chapter text, pre-listening exercises, a pronunciation section, and up-
    dated topics.
