Every language learner dreams of being able to join in with everyday conversations in real-life contexts, but it can be difficult to remember the words you need and use them naturally. Colour Your English! offers a unique way of noticing, recording, and activating useful collocations, the basic building blocks of language, and phrases that really lend colour to the way we speak.

Each of the twelve units is centred around a location in a town, and in each unit, students review and extend more than thirty collocations with common verbs and nouns while practising listening and speaking skills. The central activityŚcolouring a sceneŚtests recall and provides an attractive and user-friendly permanent record of target language for revision. The speaking activities have been designed to boost confidence and fluency for B1/B2 students in real-life situations

This book is accompanied by a subscription-based Online Learning Support package, with copious activities for extra practice for learners.
