In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks and finish the crossover from B1 to a B2. When the learner finishes this block, he/she will have the B2 level as stated by the CEFR. The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas, motivating the learner to become conversant on subjects such as the news, politics, ecology, education and employment. In terms of grammatical structures there will be continued revision and extension of the structures in all tenses. Productive and receptive skills are stretched with more phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, the differences between British and American vocabulary, expressing hopes and desires, asking indirect questions and making deductions about the past. 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, vowel sounds, elision, homophones 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 realistic dialogues and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
