Talk It Up! provides students with speaking opportunities by presenting stimulating and thought provoking springboards for discussion. Each section provides different oral language activities including scenario studies, discussion prompts, debate topics and role plays. Discussions do not have to be followed in order and so are ideal within a weekly oral languange programme or as stand-alone lessons. Through the range of discussion topics in the book students develop the skills of speaking and listening and creative thinking, as well as an understanding of objectivity and perspective and consolidation of their own personal values and opinions.
