It also has a pronunciation section and it recomends some good dictionaries where you can get help considering that english spelling and english pronunciation has a diference. Many students comment that they find working in groups difficult, becouse they can never contribute new and intelligent ideas to the group, so in speaking in academic context you will find help in working in groups, it mentions that if everyone contribute new ideas, the group would continue to be sucssesful, so there it has some roles that students can folow to be succesful in working asa team, for example a succesful group needs a leader, someone who can come with good ideas, and see the practical uses of the other group members ideas, it also mentions that a group needs to have a good Implementer, a Co-ordinator, a Resource Investigator, a complete-
