Each workbook in the series features a single film and develops the students' linguistic competencies through progressive acquisition of vocabulary and grammar structures. The contextualized activities are organized in increasing levels of difficulty, beginning with highly structured activities and progressing to open-ended communication. The wide range and variety of activities provide great flexibility and can be easily tailored to the needs of the students. Each workbook is thus a comprehensive guide which serves as an indispensable tool for language comprehension and communication.
