Touchstone Student's Book

Student's Book

Touchstone's unique comprehensive syllabus introduces ‘conversation management' strategies, places special emphasis on teaching vocabulary and vocabulary-learning strategies as well as presenting grammar in natural contexts and truly communicative pronunciation, listening, reading, and writing tasks. These are some of the key features of the Student’s Book:

  • Grammar is presented in natural contexts, with inductive ‘Figure it out’ tasks that develop language awareness.
  • The Conversation Strategy lessons cover useful phrases and strategies for managing conversations.
  • Personalized speaking practice is integrated with all language and skills activities.
  • A Vocabulary notebook section, offers practical learning tips and personalised activities while systematically covering vocabulary-building strategies.
  • Word sort tasks, encourage students to take an active role in learning new vocabulary.

The Student’s Book is also available in a split edition for shorter courses. There is also a version of the Student’s Book that includes an access code to the Online Workbook.
