WorkLife English: a Competency-Based Reading / Writing Book 5: Language & Culture in Depth, Chapter 4 / “Earning a Living,” pages 54-56
Who It’s For: Readers / Writers of ( Simulated / Real ) Job-Related Language & Discourse
Why You Need It: Even language students need to be able to read, understand, and write (un-simplified, authentic) materials related to work and/or everyday life. Here are some samples.
What You’ll / They’ll Do:
 Look at mock-ups of long, (illustrated), original newspaper employment ads from the past. Their information may or may not be applicable to current reality, but they’re sure to contain vocabulary and wording relevant to job searches and employment.
 To make good use of the samples, match them with the kinds of jobs they advertise. Extract important details about qualifications, responsibilities, and benefits expressed or implied by each piece of reading.
 Work together to (learn language and) perhaps find employment possibilities from any print or online sources available.
