New Headway Video Pre-Intermediate is the third level of the New Headway Video series and contains six more episodes in the lives of Helen, David, Jane, Matt and their neighbour, Simon. In this video, we learn that living together is not always easy, that it pays to tell the truth, and that there is such a thing as a happy ending. Each episode provides clearly defined language structures and vocabulary within an amusing story-line.
The syllabus is closely linked with the New Headway English Course Pre-Intermediate coursebook. The video is accompanied by a Student's Book and a Teacher's Book offering useful and motivating activities for students and full guidance for the teacher. The Student's Book is in full colour and illustrated throughout. Each unit is divided into three sections. The `Before you watch' section clearly establishes the theme of each episode and gives help with new vocabulary.
The `While you watch' section first exploits the main dramatic focus and then focuses on the language used. The `After you watch' section gives further practice and exploitation by extending the situations within each episode. The Student's Book also contains a Resource Bank of follow-up activities and a complete transcript of the video. The Teacher's Book offers help on using video in the classroom, teaching notes for each episode, cultural information, optional activities and answers to exercises where appropriate.
