Orientation in Business English: Secretarial Series, Text 3.
Taylor, Marcia E.
This is the third text in a Business English series designed for non-English-speaking secretarial students. Its purpose is to teach conversational English at the intermediate level while providing students with useful information about various secretarial professions and about American culture. The ten lessons in the text are each divided into three parts: Part 1 focuses on some aspect of American culture, such as bank accounts, credit buying, or various forms of social recreation and entertainment; Part 2 is introduced by a reading passage which also functions as a job description for a particular secretarial position; each reading is followed by conversation drills, a paragraph summarization, an expansion exercise, and idiom exercises; Part 3 consists of a series of word exercises which focus on various words and phrases taken from the material presented in Parts 1 and 2. For the companion workbook, see FL 003 722. (Author/VM)
