Taylor, Marcia E.
This is the second text in a Business English series designed for non-English-speaking secretarial students. Its purpose is to teach conversational English while providing students with useful information about secretarial skills and American culture. The fifteen lessons in the text are each divided into four parts: Part 1 focuses on some aspect of American culture and presents information through "Situation Sequences;" also through "Situation Sequences," Part 2 introduces new structures and vocabulary relevant to secretarial skills and terminology needed in a job situation; Part 3 contains material related to specific secretarial skills, such as correct telephone manners or the use of form letters; Part 4 of each lesson includes an illustrated reading which also functions as a job description, followed by comprehension questions and conversation practice. For the companion workbook, see FL 003 562. (Author/VM)
