Let's Talk helps intermediate learners of English develop oral communication skills as they engage in listening and speaking activities on a variety of high-interest topics, such as cultural differences, childhood memories, humorous stories, crime and punishment, and modern technology. Interaction comes naturally as students complete clear-cut tasks in pairs and groups. Vocabulary development activities and lists of helpful structures and expressions facilitate interaction. Activities are accompanied by four-color photographs, illustrations, charts, and short excerpts from magazines and newspapers. Communication tasks at the end of the text are designed with an information gap that motivates students to share their thoughts and opinions. The student's book is accompanied by recordings of people speaking naturally about their hopes, interests, problems, and daily lives. A teacher's manual gives instructions, alternatives, and extensions for each unit.
