Oxford Picture Dictionary
High Beginning WorkbookBook - 2009 | 2nd ed
This Workbook is designed for your high-beginning students using the Oxford Picture Dictionary, with activities mapped precisely onto the pages of the main book. Content of the Dictionary is organized within 12 thematic units, from Everyday Language, to People, to Housing, to Food, to Recreation. Each unit starts with an 'Intro' page (new to this edition) and ends with a story page, with single or double-page sub-topics introducing new wordsin a realistic visual context and easy-to-learn 'chunks'. The target new vocabulary is listed, and simple practice activities help students to put their new words into practice. Story pages includepre-reading questions to build previewing and predicting skills, and post-reading questions and role-play activities to support critical thinking and to encourage students to use the new language they have learned. Rich visual contexts recycle words from the unit.
