Beach Street: Student's Book 2.
The student's textbook contains lessons in intermediate English based on a fictitious community in Australia and its inhabitants. Lessons focus on two types of interaction: those with an interpersonal motivation (e.g., casual conversations), and those with pragmatic motivation (e.g., buying and selling, seeking help). The casual conversations are semi-scripted and recorded on an accompanying cassette tape. The student's book contains ten lessons with these topics: neighbors; a child's medical check-up; a quarrel; giving advice; healthy lifestyles; job information; physical activity; accidents and medical emergencies; hospital care; celebrations and festivals; expressing feelings; social behavior; and a picnic at the beach. Each lesson includes readings, listening exercises, dialogue(s), and reinforcement and extension activities emphasizing reading, writing, pronunciation, and numeracy skills. An answer key for the exercises is appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
