Helpful to: Teachers, Tutors, & Users of the Before Speaking book
What It Is: A 172-page reproducible collection of sample responses to the many activity items and questions of the student text
Why You Need It: In an interactive, self-teaching, skills-building student text like Before Speaking, there are no exercises or tests that have "correct answers." Instead, text-users are given input to use and prompts to follow with language of their own creation. Their responses to questions and directives will vary, of course. While teachers, tutors, and peers can correct, edit, and comment on these, individuals are likely to want even more feedback. Having access to the responses of many others may help in this regard.

gives a number of sample (but real) Mini-Speeches for ten culminating "Mini-Speech" assignments
helps less proficient or less confident language learners by offering examples of competent speech to practice with before participating in group activities or speaking before an audience.
aids more proficient or more eager language learners in "going beyond their present abilities." Written at a simplified to naturally sophisticated level, the many sample answers will invite comparison, inspiring motivated speakers to self-correct, edit, polish. or "perfect" their own language output.
