English in Everyday Life: Food & Things
WorkLife English: Competency-Based Listening/Speaking, Book 2 Chapter 4.
13 + 3 = 16 pp
Who It’s For: Language Teachers, Helpers, & (High Beginning & Above) Learners Getting Used to Thematic Vocabulary, Audio in Context, Pronunciation Features, & On-Tasking Interaction—All with the Aim of Building Oral-Language Skills
Why It’s Useful: The format & pursuits of each of ten Chapters of WorkLife English: A Competency-Based Listening/Speaking Book 2: English in Everyday Life are equivalent. Even so, as each new Chapter comes up, teachers & acquirers of oral English-language skills are likely to approach it with more familiarity and confidence than they had previously. Exercise instructions or Activity procedures may require less effort—so text users will be able to take in Vocabulary & Grammar and get Main Ideas + Meaningful Detail (plus “Extra Words,” Contractions, Reduced Forms) of Audio models with ease. Aware of pertinent goals, they’ll also “get into the spirit” of Info-Gap as well as other Paired / Group effort, optimizing their own improvement while helping others progress. And as is often the case, in Chapter 4 it will be fun to accomplish these goals while thinking, talking, and exchanging knowledge about “Food & Things.”
