11 + 2 = 13 pp
Who It’s For: American-English (Teachers & Helpers of) High Beginning & Above Students Becoming More Capable of Getting the Point & Significant Detail of Speech (About Things, Places, Locations, Housing), Recognizing Syllable Stress, and More
Why It’s Useful: Gradually, new English speakers will get the idea: their listening skills will improve if they focus on stressed words that convey main messages, noting “extra words” only incidentally—and if they do something with the info they take in. To improve their accents, they can “analyze” (near-) native-speaker models and imitate them closely. Both receptively and actively, they can become aware of (subtle) differences in speech sounds + stress patterns. And finally, they can demonstrate ability by cooperating with others in (automatically) self-checking Oral-Skills Tasking.
As in the other nine divisions of material that comprise E-05.01 through E-05.10, Chapter 3 of WorkLife English: A Competency-Based Listening/Speaking Book 2: English in Everyday Life, contains an Opener, Vocabulary, and four Parts with which to accomplish these aims. In contrast, however, its Subject Matter includes Housing, Locations of Things & Places, and related topics.
