It gives students further practice in the grammar, vocabulary and skills work done in the Coursebook and provides further experience of exam exercise types. The Workbook is available in two versions: one with tapescripts and answers, and one without. The Workbook exercises are organised into three lessons for each unit, which correspond to Lessons 1, 2 and 3 of each Coursebook unit. (There are only Workbook exercises which correspond to Coursebook Lesson 4s for Units 5, 10 and 15.) You may wish to use some exercises in class, to set others as homework, or to suggest that students treat the Workbook as a resource for individual study. Where class time is limited, or where individual students have special needs or difficulties, you will find it helpful to have this bank of appropriate exercises which students can be encouraged to make use of in their own time. If students are to use the Workbook on their own, it would be a good idea to go through the Introduction to the student with them first. Make sure they understand how to make best use of the answers and tapescripts, and that they follow the rationale for using a cassette player when doing the speaking tasks and for practising speaking where possible with a classmate. The Workbook reading, writing, listening and speaking exercises will give students practice in exam type tasks as well as help develop language skills. The grammar exercises will consolidate work done in the Coursebook and help students acquire the accuracy and range of structures needed for all five papers at First Certificate. Similarly, the vocabulary exercises will build on Coursebook work and extend students' active range in frequently used topic areas. Completed exercises will be useful for reference and revision. I n t r o d u c t i o n t o t h e t e a c h e r 5 Introduction to the student You probably already realise that, if you want to make progress in English, you have to study by yourself as well as do work in class. This Workbook is to help you make the best use of your home study time. HOW TO USE THE W O R K B O O K Your teacher may ask you to do certain Workbook exercises for homework, or you may use the Workbook entirely on your own. If you arc using the Workbook without a teacher, you probably need to have the edition which has answers (and the texts of the recorded material) at the back. Then, when you have completed an exercise, you can check your answers for yourself. Of course, you should never look at the answers, or the tapescript, until you have done the exercise. Before you do any Workbook exercise, study the instructions and the example carefully so that you know what to do. HOW THE W O R K B O O K IS O R G A N I S E D The Workbook exercises give you further practice in the work you have done on grammar, vocabulary and reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in the First Certificate Avenues Coursebook. There are Workbook exercises for Lessons 1, 2 and 3 of every Coursebook unit. You should do the Workbook exercises after you have done the corresponding Coursebook lesson in class. The reading, writing, listening and speaking tasks give you practice in the kinds of exercises you will have to do in the Eirst Certificate exam. There is a Workbook cassette which contains all the recorded material for the listening, speaking and pronunciation exercises. GRAMMAR AND V O C A B U L A R Y You will find the Workbook grammar exercises give you more practice in grammar work done in the Coursebook. The Workbook vocabulary exercises practise vocabulary that has been taught in the Coursebook. They also extend your vocabulary with other words and phrases around the topic of the unit which are useful at First Certificate level. READING AND L I S T E N I N G Doing the Workbook reading and listening tasks will help you improve your reading and listening skills. You 6 should do the tasks in different ways. Sometimes you can take as much time as you need, reading or listening to the text as often as you like, and. if you can't guess the meaning of an important word, using a dictionary to help you. At other times you should do the tasks as timed exam practice: only listening to each listening text twice, and taking 1 5-20 minutes to do each reading task, and not referring to a dictionary. WRITING Doing the Workbook writing tasks will develop your writing skills. Remember to follow the instructions, to make a paragraph plan before you write, and to check what you have written carefully afterwards. It's useful if a teacher can correct your written work for you, but it's not essential. Just doing the writing is good practice. If possible, ask a classmate to read what you have written to see if you have communicated your ideas clearly. There are model answers to some writing tasks at the back of the edition with answers. Sometimes you should try to do a writing task as timed exam practice. If you want to do that, think about the task, plan, write and check your work, all in 45 minutes. SPEAKING The Workbook speaking tasks are perhaps the most difficult exercises to do on your own. But it is very important that you practise your speaking as much as the other skills. This is because Eirst Certificate Paper 5, like the other papers, earns 2 0 % of the total marks in the exam - and you can only improve by practising. For most speaking tasks there is an example or model on the cassette. Listen to this carefully. Practise what you want to say, then record yourself speaking on a blank cassette. Listen to what you have said, think how you could improve your performance and record yourself again. This will help you express your ideas more fluently and make fewer mistakes. If possible, do the speaking tasks with a classmate. Then you can help each other, enjoy the task more, and get useful exam practice. Remember, in the First Certificate exam you will do Paper 5 with another candidate. Doing the Workbook exercises in addition to the work in First Certificate Avenues Coursebook will mean you face the exam with added confidence in your ability to do all five papers well. I n t r o d u c t i o n t o the s t u d e n t U N S T O N E Language 1 Learning English Grammar Asking questions Vocabulary Claudia is in England and wants to do a summer school in English.

Learn the ones that are new for you. 7 Listen to ten 'getting to know you' questions on the recording and answer them with information about yourself. These questions are typical of the sort of questions the examiner will ask you in Part 1 of Paper J. There is a pause on the recording between each question: try to keep talking for the whole length of the pause. When you have answered all the questions, stop the recording and think about your answers. In what ways could you improve them? Did you make any g r a m m a r mistakes which you can correct now? C o u l d y o u h a v e u s e d m o r e p r e c i s e o r m o r e interesting vocabulary? Can you think of a better way of joining y o u r ideas together? Rewind the recording a n d answer the questions again. Were your answers better this time? For further practice, if possible, ask and answer the questions with a classmate. Use your dictionary wisely Read the following advice carefully. Three of the 'rules' give unwise advice: which do you think they are? Why? Look at the end of the book to see if you are right about the 'unwise rules'. U N I T 1 L a n g u a g e 9 Although she had the problem with her doctor, she still felt worried.
