LANGMaster COURSES are enhanced with a number of multimedia features that ordinary books do not have – texts accompanied by sound, interactive exercises,
a storybook cinema, and a number of full color illustrative pictures.
This level is intended for those students, who are able to use simple sentences in the present or past tense and who have at least a passive knowledge of forming questions and negatives in English. The courses are also suitable for children (10 years or older), for whom a picture dictionary with some basic words is available. For easier understanding the texts and exercises are accompanied by many illustrations. Contains: The Long Tunnel (John Milne), The Garden (Elizabeth Laird), Dangerous Journey (Alwyn Cox), Rich Man Poor Man (T.C. Jupp).
This level is intended for students, who are familiar with the basic grammar and vocabulary but their knowledge is mostly passive – they have problems understanding native speakers and they recall needed words with difficulty. The course will improve their listening comprehension and pronunciation and will activate and expand their vocabulary. Contains: The Stranger (Norman Whitney), Room 13 and Other Ghost Stories (M.R. James), The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), Riders of the Purple Sage (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle).
This level is intended for students, who have been learning English for a number of years. They have a large vocabulary and a good knowledge of grammar, but they
are still not satisfied with their ability. They are not comfortable making phone calls in English and they need to get the language under their skin. The native speakers in the recordings speak more quickly and the texts are more complicated. Contains: The Sign of Four (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle), Dracula (Bram Stoker), The Speckled Band and Other Stories (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle), The Woman Who Disappeared (Philip Prowse).
