This cutting-edge multimedia series prepares students for the challenge of college lectures with a wide range of listening, speaking and note-taking strategies and skills. Targeting corpus-based vocabulary drawn from the Academic Word List, this content-based series ensures that students learn the vocabulary they are most likely to encounter in an academic setting.


For each level, twelve college lectures (on DVD) are drawn from a range of academic disciplines and reflect authentic lecture settings, featuring engaging instructors and live student audiences.
