Orientation in Business English: Secretarial Series, Workbook 3.
Taylor, Marcia E.
This workbook accompanies the third text in a Business English series designed for non-English-speaking secretarial students. It supplements and reinforces the material in the text and gives the student practice in reading and writing what he has previously studied orally in class. The ten lessons in the workbook correspond to the ten lessons in the text. Each lesson is divided into three parts: Part 1 includes a narrative, a written comprehension exercise, and sentence paraphrasing practice on the subject of the life of a person who is working as a secretary; Part 2 consists of an idiom practice which reinforces the idioms encountered in the text and calls upon the students to write a paragraph utilizing these idioms; Part 3 consists of exercises which enable the student to test his ability to recognize and utilize the synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms previously presented in the text. For the companion text, see FL 003 723. (Author/VM)
