Leamos Sobre Veinte Ocupaciones! Twenty Trades to Read About.
Lamatino, Robyn; Mintz, Adin
Twenty trades are explored in this bilingual supplementary workbook, designed specifically for native Spanish speakers who are in the process of learning English. The purpose of this book is to ease the Spanish-speaking student from his/her native language into English with as little discomfort as possible. There are twenty chapters in the book with successively more English as the chapters progress. Each chapter begins with a story in both English and Spanish. The first exercise in each chapter consists of ten vocabulary words in Spanish and English with their respective definitions. Various exercises are constructed throughout the unit using the ten words. The work is designed to be used in English as a second-language program, vocational career exploration, gaming improvement, and simulation practice. Some games, crossword puzzles, and other activities are included. The text is illustrated. The units contain exercises related to the following trades: auto body, auto mechanics, baking, carpentry and cabinetmaking, electrical trades, fashion design, commercial foods, health occupations, ornamental horticulture, plumbing, painting and decorating, machine shop, upholstery, welding, graphic arts, air conditioning and refrigeration, commercial art, drafting, cosmetology, and diesel machines.
