Real Talk 2, by Lida Baker and Judith Tanka, helps teachers transport high-intermediate to advanced students out of the language classroom and into the world of authentic English. Each of the book’s eight thematic chapters has four parts: In Person, On the Phone, On the Air, and In Class. With Real Talk 2, teachers can expose students to spontaneous face-to-face conversations, phone conversations and messages, radio broadcasts, and academic lectures.
