Format: Paperback
By Shih-Wei Lin
The book, Interactions 1 Listening/Speaking 4th Edition, is written by Judith Tanka, Paul Most, and Lida R. Baker. It was published by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. in 2002, and the ISBN number is 0-07-233063-5. It is a textbook for ESL/EFL students who are in the beginning to low intermediate level and it can be used to improve students¡¦ listening and speaking ability. I would like to evaluate the book from its appearance, content, and additional materials.
The appearance of the book is neither special nor attractive. However, people cannot judge a book by its cover. When I skimmed over the book, I found that the illustrations in the book are vivid, the photographs are excellent, and the charts go along very well with the text. Besides these, the book is printed on recycled, acid-free paper with 10.5 or 12 Time Roman. It has only 270 pages and the size is not larger than A4 paper. Therefore, the book is durable and convenient for students to carry and use.
To evaluate the content of this textbook, I would analyze the learning theories and the organization used in this book, and assess the quality and quantity of the exercises. First of all, the methods adapted in the book are Audioligual Method (ALM) and Communicative Language Teaching (CLT), but it does not focus on grammar translating and explaining. Like ALM it uses charts or tables to show sentence patterns so that students have lots of drills in speaking. Teachers can use tapes or CDs for students to practice listening and imitate the intonation. It also has a special practice section on pronunciation, which gives students practice stressing or reducing words.
