This is the first of three readers in a series designed to impart survival language skills to students of English as a second language. Four units cover the following topics: (1) telling time; (2) learning about one's community, by way of the example of the imaginary island of Mahimahi; (3) reading menus and newspaper advertisements; and (4) opening a savings account, using terms of address correctly, and looking for an apartment. Each unit consists of low-vocabulary readings interspersed with exercises. The latter include recognition and matching exercises, Cloze readings, and comprehension quizzes. Because the material was intended for non-English speakers in Hawaii, Hawaiian or quasi-Hawaiian names, organizations, and locations are used throughout. Illustrations include sample menus and advertisements, clock faces and calendars, and maps. (JB)
