Some units contain diagrams or tables to complete, or crosswords.
40ver to you8 sections
An important feature of Professional English in Use Finance is the Over to you section at the end of each unit. The Over to you sections give you the chance to put into practice the words and expressions in the unit in relation to your own professional situation, studies or opinions. For some of them you will need to find information on the internet or in newspapers.
Self-study learners can do this section as a written activity.
In the classroom, the Over to you sections can be used as the basis for discussion with the whole class, or in small groups with a spokesperson for each group summarizing the discussion and its outcome for the class. The teacher can then get learners to look again at the exercises relating to points that have caused difficulty. Learners can follow up by using the Over to you section as a written activity, for example as homework.
How to use the book for self-study
Find the topic you are looking for by referring to the contents page or the index. Read through the explanations on the left-hand page of the unit. Do the exercises on the right- hand page. Check your answers in the key. If you have made some mistakes, go back and look at the explanations and exercise again. Note down important words and expressions in your notebook.
How to use the book in the classroom
Teachers can choose units that relate to learners' particular needs and interests, for example areas they have covered in course books, or that have come up in other activities. Alternatively, lessons can contain a regular vocabulary slot, where learners look systematically at the vocabulary of particular thematic areas.
Learners can work on the units in pairs, with the teacher going round the class assisting and advising. Teachers should get learners to think about the logical process of the exercises, pointing out why one answer is possible and others are not.
