In diesem Arbeitsbuch 1 zu 'Themen neu - Ausgabe in zwei Bänden' werden die wichtigen Redemittel jeder Lektion einzeln herausgehoben und ihre Bildung und ihr Gebrauch geübt. Alle Übungen sind einzelnen Lernschritten im Kursbuch eindeutig zugeordnet. Jeder Lektion ist eine Übersicht über die Redemittel vorangestellt, die in der betreffenden Lektion gelernt werden. Diese Übersicht ist sowohl eine Orientierungshilfe für die Kursleiterin oder den Kursleiter als auch eine Möglichkeit der Selbstkontrolle für die Lernenden - nach Durchnahme der Lektion sollte ihnen kein Eintrag in dieser Liste mehr unbekannt sein. Die Autoren empfehlen nicht, diese Listen als solche auswendig zu lernen - das Durcharbeiten der Übungen setzt einen effizienteren Lernprozess in Gang. Zu den meisten Übungen gibt es im Schlüssel eine Lösung. Dies ermöglicht es den Lernenden selbständig zu arbeiten und sich selbst zu korrigieren. Zusammen mit dem Kursbuch und evtl. einem Glossar kann dieses Arbeitsbuch dazu dienen, versäumte Stunden selbständig nachzuholen. Die Übungen des Arbeitsbuchs können im Kurs vor allem nach Erklärungsphasen in Stillarbeit eingesetzt werden. Je nach den Lernbedingungen der Kursteilnehmer können die Übungen aber auch weitgehend in häuslicher Einzelarbeit gemacht werden. Eine Ausnahme bildet Übung 6 in Lektion 9; für diese Übung werden die 'Hörtexte 1' (3 Kassetten, Nr. 2.1566, oder 3 CDs, Nr. 3.1566) benötigt. (Über die Möglichkeit, die Lösungen aus dem Schlüssel abzuschreiben, sollte man sich nicht allzu viele Gedanken machen. Oft ist der Lernerfolg dabei fast ebenso groß. Manche Lernende lassen sich von dem Argument überzeugen, dass das Abschreiben meistens wesentlich mühsamer ist als ein selbständiges Lösen der Aufgabe.) Nicht alle Übungen lassen sich im Arbeitsbuch selbst lösen; für manche Übungen wird also eigenes Schreibpapier benötigt.
