The first activity book expands on the first student's book and reinforces acquired skills and linguistic structures. Each of the 25 lessons in the student's book has 3 accompanying pages in the activity book. Students can begin the activities in class with a teacher’s help and can complete them at home. Teachers should collect books from students after each lesson to correct them.
