examination sections are practised -skimming for information, detailed
comprehension, information transfer, note-making, summary writing, extended
writing in formal and informal formats. There is additional practice in
the three Extended Reading sections of the book.

questions and spoken texts (conversations, interviews, monologues, etc.).
