Spotlight on First is a fully comprehensive course that has been
revised to be in line with the new Cambridge English exam
specifications for January 2015. It prepares adults and younger
learners to excel in the revised exam. An exciting new feature of
this revised edition is the Ideas Generator. Test takers need to
generate ideas to pass the Speaking and Writing papers of the exam.
The Ideas Generator uses National Geographic videos to stimulate
students' interest in common exam topics, help them build ideas
about these topics and gather the language they need to effectively
write or speak about them. After each video lesson students will
have a bank of ideas, functional language and vocabulary tied to
eight topics that commonly appear in the exam. One of the most
difficult parts of the exam for students is the Speaking Test. The
Speaking Test videos and worksheets prepare students to deal with
this challenge by getting them to engage with simulations of all
four parts of the Speaking test.
