Real English vs. Textbook English: True Colors
Two of the biggest challenges for our students are (1) after years of
studying stilted textbook English, coping with real English in the real
world, and (2) moving away from the textbook towards expressing their own
thoughts in their own words, to think and interact successfully with others
outside the classroom. Recognizing the reality of the Korean student
-- in a monolingual class outside the English-speaking world -- the authors
have built True Colors around a wealth of speaking and reading models of
the true voice of the English speaker. Students are presented with
an abundance of both receptive and productive models, combining exposure
and practice for increased understanding and achievable mastery.
The presenter will demonstrate the five-level series, including video,
and show how you can help your students' true colors shine through.
