PACESETTER: TEACHER S BOOK: STARTER LEVEL
Pacesetter is a four-level course for teenagers with a communicative approach. New language is presented in contexts relevant to teenagers and in ways which actively involve students in the learning process. Grammar is the starting point of the syllabus. The problem-solving approach to grammar helps students to work out for themselves the meaning and use of structures. Practice activities help students use the grammar in everyday situations. Motivating topics draw on students' own experiences and develop their interest in the world around them. Integrated skills work presents students with a variety of activities that develop their confidence and fluency in speaking, reading, writing and listening. The variety of texts, discussions and dialogues is supported by practical tasks that help students to use and understand the new language. A systematic vocabulary syllabus combined with learning-to-learn skills encourage students to develop their own strategies for remembering new words.
