About The Product

All Clear teaches students to recognize and produce the high-frequency idioms, phrases, and contemporary expressions needed in a range of conversational situations. Each lesson focuses initially on chunks of language in the form of idioms and other expressions (collocations) and then provides many structured and communicative activities for speaking, listening, grammar, writing, pronunciation, and public speaking practice.


  • Listening skills are developed through pre-, while-, and post-listening activities related to each unit's introductory dialogue.
  • "Your Turn" speaking activities encourage learners to use the newly acquired idioms and expressions interactively.
  • Numerous listening and speaking activities help build fluency through the integration of reading, writing, and grammar skills.
  • Special attention is given to the grammar related to expressions in order to help develop fluency and accuracy.
  • For each lesson, there is a pronunciation section at the back of the book that uses the language and theme of that lesson to practice specific pronunciation points.
  • New "Your Turn" speaking activities encourage learners to use the newly acquired idioms and expressions interactively.
