Progressive Skills in English is a topic based coursebook‎,‎ consisting of five themes‎:‎ culture and civilization‎,‎ technology‎,‎ arts and media‎,‎ sports and leisure along with nutrition and health‎.‎ Although each unit focuses on one particular skill‎,‎ space is given for vocabulary and grammar‎,‎ and practice of the other skills‎.‎ The thing I like most about the book is the variety it offers‎,‎ and the meticulous way it handles all four skills‎.‎ All skill sections have the five same subsections‎:‎ Vocabulary for the skill‎;‎ Real time‎;‎ Learning new skills‎;‎ Grammar for the skill‎,‎ and Applying new skills‎.‎ The exercise types and layout are varied‎,‎ the visuals are vivid‎,‎ and the CDs and DVD are of good quality with different accents‎.‎ Listening and pronunciation work stand out‎.‎ In Theme 1‎,‎ Real time listening‎,‎ there is a variation on cloze tests which I hadn‎'‎t seen before‎.‎ The recording is of a talk where the speaker pauses and students are asked to predict the words‎.‎ It feels realistic‎.‎ The listener can complete the speaker‎'‎s words because they want to show they are interested and following the conversation‎,‎ or because the speaker can‎'‎t think of a word‎.‎ I tried it out with my preintermediate speaking class‎.‎ First‎,‎ we personalised the subject of festivals and rituals‎,‎ then I had them listen to a talk about the subject and complete the sentences in any way they liked‎.‎ Exact words were not expected but they were still able to predict most of the words‎.‎ There were a few blanks where we discussed alternatives‎.‎ Another exercise in this section focuses on understanding spoken definitions‎,‎ to help avoid communication breakdown‎.‎ The sub‎-section‎,‎ Grammar for Listening‎,‎ contains time prepositions‎,‎ linking sentences and alternative ways of expressing ideas‎,‎ plus word‎-building and prepositions after verbs‎.‎ Other listening sections focus on lectures‎:‎ understanding the organization of a lecture‎,‎ signpost words‎,‎ phrases signaling the main topic and sub‎-topics‎,‎ differentiating between opinion and facts and making notes‎.‎ As part of an introduction to our second term programme‎,‎ I used a lesson on note‎-taking in lectures‎.‎ The lecture was about inventions and names and dates were to be matched with visuals‎.‎ Then there was a follow‎-up lecture with a chart to fill in‎.‎ I finished the lesson by working on the pronunciation of some words in the lecture‎.‎ The speaking sections have similar areas of focus to the listening sections‎.‎ They include conversations‎,‎ functional language and the use of academic language in tutorials‎,‎ plus research and presentations‎.‎ Progressive skills in English also provides practice on arranging information to help students to give a talk using slides‎.‎ The Everyday English sections are useful in that they provide authentic dialogues for various situations‎,‎ give practice to expressions and encourage creativity‎.‎ Reading practice includes‎:‎ predicting content and contextual vocabulary‎;‎ achieving coherence‎;‎ scanning‎;‎ and differentiating between fact and possibility with the help of grammatical cues‎.‎ Comprehension exercises vary from controlled to semi‎-controlled and free‎.‎ Vocabulary is revised at the end of each skills section‎.‎ There is also a knowledge quiz‎,‎ related to the topics of the reading texts‎,‎ which also checks vocabulary‎.‎ The Grammar for reading section includes some very useful subject +verb work‎.‎ One exercise type used is key word transformation‎,‎ which I find really improves the students‎'‎ awareness of grammar‎.‎ The writing skill sections include exercises on cohesive devices‎,‎ articles‎,‎ prepositions and basic paragraph structure‎.‎ In this part‎,‎ students are required to add vocabulary to a text‎,‎ increase awareness of collocation‎,‎ practise spelling and correct errors‎.‎ They learn how to organize information‎,‎ design questionnaires‎,‎ analyse data and write research reports‎.‎ In the Portfolio sections there are exercises such as listening to information about a festival‎,‎ making notes‎,‎ exchanging information and deciding which event to attend‎.‎ Learners then take notes again‎,‎ this time based on a reading text which they explain to their partner who also takes notes‎.‎ Lastly‎,‎ they prepare and deliver a short talk on one of the festivals‎.‎ These are all good ideas‎.‎ The lessons have a single focus‎,‎ are well integrated‎,‎ and activities flow smoothly from one to the other‎.‎ My one reservation is that there is too much work on the same subject‎,‎ risking student fatigue and students running out of ideas‎,‎ although if you‎'‎re not planning to cover the whole book‎,‎ this may not matter much‎.‎ Alternative routes through the material are suggested in the Teacher‎'‎s Book‎.‎ The Teacher‎'‎s Book also includes‎,‎ among other things‎,‎ alterative approaches ‎(‎e‎.‎g‎.‎ getting students to listen only once as in real life‎)‎ and optional extra activities‎.‎ One point mentioned in the Teacher‎'‎s Book is that intonation helps to convey meaning and is not given the importance it deserves‎.‎ I asked an English colleague of mine for his opinion‎.‎ His answer was that he is sure that his eyes glaze over when he has a long conversation with someone with poor intonation‎.‎ On the other hand‎,‎ when I listen to student presentations correct articulation is important for me‎.‎ Recently‎,‎ one of my students pronounced wheel‎"‎ like ‎"‎well‎"‎ and another ‎"‎source‎"‎ like ‎"‎search‎"‎‎,‎ which led me to confusion‎.‎ For me‎,‎ then‎,‎ the relative importance of intonation is still an open question‎.‎ Overall‎,‎ Progressive Skills in English has given me new insights into teaching skills and is a life‎-saver withan admirable collection of activities suitable to the level‎.‎ Practice makes perfect‎,‎ as the saying goes‎,‎ and this book offers plenty of practice in areas helpful for academic purposes‎.‎‎"‎ Modern English Teacher‎:‎ July 2012‎,‎ Volume 21‎,‎ No‎.‎ 3‎,‎ Ece Eryendi‎.‎
