The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas. In this block the learner is introduced to the contrasting uses of the tenses covered so far such as Present Continuous for future plans with Going to for intentions. As with the other blocks on the course, there is frequent pronunciation practice and the learner has exposure to long and short sounds, correct regular past tense endings as well as general vocabulary and sentence level practice. The use of a variety of exercises encompasses different learner styles as well as guaranteeing thorough coverage of the topics covered.
