Real Talk 1, by Lida Baker and Judith Tanka, helps intermediate to high-intermediate students break away from the classroom and enter 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. The listening segments expose students to spontaneous face-to-face conversations, phone conversations and pre-recorded messages, radio broadcasts, and academic lectures.

In Person: Chapter 3: Marrying Someone Different (2:13)

On the Air: Chapter 8: Radio Interview - Lying (2:47)

In Class: Chapter 4: Lecture - Rap Music (abridged for sample) (2:10)
