There are ten Time To Talk courses: green, yellow, orange, purple, red, silver, blue, pink, brown, navy.
There are two student's books with a CD in each of the ten Time to Talk courses: Book S (standard) and Book A (advantage).
Most Time to Talk lessons follow this consistent framework:
• Reading / Listening activity
• Language focus
• Sounding natural
• ‘Time to talk’ activity
The Introduction activity is a warm-up designed to introduce the lesson topic and new vocabulary. Clear visual images help learners to connect with the topic and to contextualise the language in everyday life. Increasing learners’ vocabulary assists them in communicating more effectively.
Reading / Listening activity
Time to Talk’s Reading and Listening activities present the target language in a realistic context. The comprehension questions help learners with their reading and listening skills, essential for advanced communication. Students discuss their answers with the class.
The Language focus sections outline the rules and uses of the target grammar. As well as providing realistic examples of the target language, short comprehension exercises are also sometimes featured. Understanding grammar helps to give students the confidence necessary for English communication.
The Practice exercises are controlled activities that check students’ understanding of the target language and grammar.
The Sounding natural activities give learners the opportunity to improve their pronunciation skills through tasks that practise areas such as elision, weak forms, stress, rhythm and intonation.
Time to talk activity
The Time to talk activities empower learners to say what they want. Students prepare their own ideas, discuss these ideas in pairs and, finally, present the ideas to the whole class. Learners are encouraged to express and to share their own opinions with each other.
As a result, students can develop their discussion and presentation skills. Teachers can develop the conversations based on the interests and abilities of the class and the length of the lesson.
