"Put English to Work" - it's ESL for the world of work! Contemporary's "Put English to Work" integrates competencies, structures, and functions within a communicative model. Students acquire general vocational and pre-vocational skills - a perfect prescription for vocation and workplace ESL programs and one that's flexible enough for general adult ESL/ESOL programs, too. Each of the seven books follows the workplace experiences of several characters: getting hired, keeping a job, and working toward promotion, along with occasional returns to pre-employment. Accompanying audiocassettes provide recorded dialogues from the texts and other listening exercises. The instructor's manual contains lesson plans, extension activities, grammar explanations, answer keys, and tape scripts.
