You can find the video episodes in lessons 2 and 4 of each unit. In each dramatic segment, the characters interact using the vocabulary and grammar from the corresponding lessons, as well as a small number of new, everyday expressions.
The Language in Action section in each textbook lesson is an abbreviated version of the dramatic episode featured in the Supersite.
Activities are provided for both the textbook dialogues and the videos.
