I was so pleased to have found a book with such an array of spoken texts and accompanying exercises to check comprehension. I teach non-native speakers and I was delighted that, contained in one book, there was something for almost all advanced beginner and intermediate levels.
Most disconcerting, and annoying then, was an exercise to find prepositional verbs (phrasal verbs)that were supposed to have already been mentioned in two previous exercises involving a series of 6 monologues. Apart from two, the other phrasal verbs in the list had not been used in the six monologues making the exercise completely redundant. Pity; it's a great teaching tool otherwise.
