What is English Now?

• Exercises that require listening for key phrases and textual details will build your knowledge of English and trigger further language development.

• You will become adept at using the language acquired in the vocabulary, listening, and grammar sections by participating in topic-related speaking exercises.

• The easy-to-follow models and supportive speech frameworks will allow you to speak spontaneously without feeling pressured.

• You will gain plenty of experience in speaking with others through the book’s many pair activities and group-work exercises.

How is English Now! Starter organized?
• English Now! Starter has 16 units.
• Each unit is divided into 4 parts.

Each unit consists of:
I. Warm Up: introduces you to the vocabulary and phrases you need to listen and speak effectively in the later sections.
II. Speak & Listen: develops your speaking and listening skills with dialogues and listening exercises.
III. Dialogue: provides speaking activities for pairs or groups based on the unit topic.
IV. Communicate: encourages you to integrate the sentence patterns and vocabulary you have learned to create your own answers to open-ended questions.

How to teach English Now! Starter
• Start each unit with the Warm Up section. Use it to generate ideas about the topic by introducing the new vocabulary for the unit. Model and practice the dialogue to familiarize students with the key phrases and vocabulary just learned.

• Then look at the Speak & Listen section. Have students use the provided information to practice the sentence patterns. This will help students focus on the key information in a sentence, and thus give them an idea of what they should be listening for later. Then, use the listening exercises to train them to comprehend the key message in a conversation.

• After finishing the listening component, encourage your students to listen to the conversation in the Dialogue section, and to repeat what they have heard. Then have them practice it with a partner by replacing some parts of the conversation with three phrase options. This will give them good speaking practice through interaction and help them remember common sentence structures as well as conversational patterns.

• Students should already have some idea of how to use the grammatical structures introduced in the unit. Therefore, in the Communicate section, have students read the open-ended questions and come up with their own answers. Then, have them use their answers in a conversation and share with the class what they have heard from their partners. This will enhance their listening, speaking, and paraphrasing abilities.

• The speaking practice sections of this book attempt to make speaking as stress-free as possible by providing plenty of structure and support for students. If you feel they are ready for freer practice, encourage them to create their own dialogues. Also, encourage the students to pronounce words as naturally as possible and not put any undue emphasis or stress on a particular sound.
