Module 2


Intermediate Module 2 builds on the skills learned in the Beginners Module 1. The intermediate Module 2 has 263 minutes of audio with Answer Keys.

This module covers Q&A templates, language settings in Word, notating overtalk and trailed off sentences and how to deal with listening responses.
