"Messages" is a four-level course for lower-secondary students. Each level contains six modules of two units, each divided into three manageable "steps". Clear aims and outcomes for each step mean students can put what they learn into practice immediately. Each level of the course provides 80-90 hours of classwork with lots of recycling in regular four-page review sections. Level 1 assumes students have studied English at primary level, but gives full coverage of all basic language areas. The course takes students to an intermediate level by the end of Level 4. The Audio CD/CD-ROM inside this Workbook contains the recordings for all of the listening exercises in the Workbook and 72 CD-ROM exercises to practise grammar, vocabulary and reading. It also contains a CD-ROM animated tour of one of the Info quests from the "Messages" website, together with the website address.
