Finish the Job. No Excuses.

It was a simple job. Take the contact from point A to point B. But someone knew the secret that would stop Will from fulfilling his commitment. And now he’s being interrogated by a mysterious agent who knows more than she lets on.

This is the world of Adrift, a four-episode drama by Chasing Time English created for B2+/Upper Intermediate or Advanced language learners. This engaging, professionally produced video series provides models of oral communication in English, using verbal and non-verbal communication.

Activities in the accompanying student book help students analyze how the actors use not only words and grammar, but also body language, intonation, rhythm, and volume to convey meaning and how we adapt to our audience. Students are encouraged to practice these skills in fun and safe drama activities.

The book focuses on pragmatics skills that students can apply outside the classroom, whether it be social conversations, academic debates, or work presentations.

Each chapter consists of:

  • Preview vocabulary and discussion activities
  • Theme-based tasks
  • Pragmatics lessons and activities
  • Confidence in communication drama activities
  • Extension/evaluation activities including listening, reading, grammar, vocabulary and writing tasks.

A final creative assignment brings together all the communication skills students have learned as they create their own solution to the mystery at the heart of Adrift. And the script is provided for use as a graded reader.

An accompanying teacher’s book includes full instructions for using the material, notes on teaching communication skills, photocopiable activities, and answer keys.
