Speak Your Mind: Student’s Book Level 3

This 6-level general English course is for young adults. The twelve units include activities to encourage learners to consider different viewpoints, think things through and then express their own ideas. There is a good range of stimulating topics, from the ‘gig economy’ to the familiar ‘climate change’. The six ‘Follow A Pro’ videos provide interesting insights into people’s working lives, including an astronomer and a musician. I especially like the boxes provided for students to write in new words. The ‘Make it digital’ tasks provide an extra dimension; in one activity, students look for adverts which have been banned. In another, students record their own talent contest, which will excite some students but may not appeal to others; teachers will need to be selective. Recommended.
