The Turners [An Audio-Visual Course for Students of English as a Foreign Language]. Teacher's Book and Students' Book.
British Council, London (England).
This audio-visual course for students of English as a foreign language is designed to produce fluent and accurate control of informal spoken English. The course provides a review of the major features of English structure, beginning with the simplest and moving to progressively more difficult points. The vocabulary is based on approximately 1500 words. The material is aimed at students already familiar with the written language at an elementary level who wish to develop their oral ability; it is also suggested for intensive work with students wishing to revise or brush up their English, as well as for beginners. The lessons center around the activities of an English family and present information about life in Britain useful to students planning to work or study in that country. The format is comprised of 30 "states," each containing up to about a week's work and consisting of a filmstrip, a dialogue tape, and a drills tape. Every sixth stage is a review lesson. A guide to each stage, together with texts of the dialogue and drills and pictures required for some of the drills, are contained in the Teacher's Book. The Students' Book contains dialogue texts and pictures only. (AMM)
