The student workbook Dare to Compare

In this course, students will be presented with real-life situations that require them to compare options, obtain information orally and in writing, and then make a final decision related to a wide range of products and services. Students will read texts such as advertisements, brochures, menus, job descriptions and reports, and listen to discussions and podcasts in order to engage in meaningful oral communication tasks with their classmates and the teacher.

This workbook has five learning situations.


  • In Learning Situation 1, students will compare restaurant options in order to make a reservation for a meal.
  • In Learning Situation 2, students will obtain information in order to provide advice related to employment and training courses.
  • In Learning Situation 3, students will read a comparative study of zoos that outlines their respective costs and services in order to make recommendations for travel.
  • In Learning Situation 4, students will compare the uses and policies of common entertainment streaming services.
  • In Learning Situation 5, students will compare the price and characteristics of electronic products, such as cell phones and tablet computers, in order to give advice to consumers.

The first few pages of each learning situation contain the expected learning outcomes, explain the real-life situations and provide a graphic organizer to assist students in the final task. Subsequent learning activities provide guidance, suggest learning strategies and offer additional background information that will help students complete the final task.


The 2nd edition of the student’s workbook ANG-4101-2 Dare to Compare is proposing the following changes:
  • Each chapter have been structured as a cohesive learning situation that begins with a real-life scenario and continues to guide students toward the completion of a specific task;
  • The reading, listening and speaking activities presented in the learning situation prepare students to organize information from written and oral texts, develop ideas, build vocabulary and follow language structures in order to succeed in their end-of-course evaluation;
  • Codes in the workbook provide direct access to online listening activities without the need to purchase any additional CD’s.
