In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks and begin the transition from B1 to a solid B2. The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas, especially in situations such as travel and accommodation, expressing oneself and responding to questions. In this block the learner will practice the narrative tenses (Past simple, Past continuous and Present perfect) and begin to practice re-telling personal experiences and stories from journeys or past events. 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. The block is comprised of a series of interactive exercises such as word-picture association, listening comprehension with short, realistic dialogues and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
