English In motion 3

Richmond is not responsible for the content of external websites.

Unit 1 - First impressions

This website has got about 400 exercises for grammar and vocabulary practice. All the exercises are meant for elementary and intermediate students.
To review contents for unit 1, it is recommended to choose 2nd year intermediate from the drop-down menu on the left, then Grammar and then Degrees of comparison. There are 5 exercises for this and a study zone with a summary of all the possibilities to form comparatives and superlatives.
Students can also review the form and use of both Present simple and Present continuous. The exercises can be found in the same drop-down menu on the left.

Unit 2 - Team work

This is a Learning Link where students can practise writing lists of words. They create a list of camping equipment, which is directly connected to the vocabulary from the unit.
The page guides them step by step into creating this list. Instructions are straightforward and once on the page, students just need to follow what's on the screen. They can print out their lists at the end.

Unit 3 - Talking culture

This is a website linked to the contents in this unit. Students can learn more about some of the most unusual museums in the world.
There are about 44 museums to choose from. Some of the best are number 8, the banana museum, number 31, the museum of odd socks or number 43, world carrot museum, where students can actually see the many colours carrots can have.
We also recommend number 23, Sherlock Holmes Museum, and number 34,
Microcar Museum

Unit 4 - Attitudes

This is a curious website where students can learn more about phobias.
Not only can they can find the answer to the Quest in the unit but also learn about more phobias.

Unit 5 - Experiences

A website where the students can practise both the form and the use of the Present Perfect at an initial stage. They can therefore build up their confidence and thus be better prepared for unit 7, where they will be introduced to more complex uses of this tense.
On the page, look under English Tenses Active and click on the Present Perfect Simple. There you will find basic forms, uses and signal words. Exercises focus on the simple uses, forming questions, negatives and rewriting of sentences.
You can use this website for extra practice on other verb forms if necessary.

Unit 6 - Living space

It is time for students to focus on pronunciation and practise the sounds they have been introduced to, not only in this unit but in previous ones as well.
The website has about sixteen different pronunciation lessons for vowels, consonants and consonant clusters. Each session has five exercises, ranging from practice to test. All lessons include audio. The audio is played directly on the same page which is very convenient.
Session 7 [] vs. [] (grown vs. town) is a good starting point.

Unit 7 - Collections

This is a website which contains a database for the websites of thousands of celebrities. It is a great resource for students to read about their favourite celebrities. They can browse by alphabetical order or by category: singer, actor, model, etc.
Students can find the exact website for a specific celebrity and find out more information about him or her.
As some websites offer free videos and samples of songs, interviews, etc, it is not only a good reading practice but also a good opportunity to improve their listening skills.

Unit 8 - Action!

This website offers free ESL video quizzes and resources for ESL / EFL students and teachers. Use the menu on the left to move around and look for interesting videos.

Unit 9 - Communicate

This website could actually be used for any unit from the book as it offers varied practice. For this last unit, students can do activities to practise both listening and reading. These activities also incorporate mixed verb tenses practice.
Students scroll down on the right menu looking for Songs. This is within the Others section, just below Grammar.
When the Songs section opens, there are individual exercises (mostly gap fill) on different songs and videos likely to appeal the students' taste.
