English as a Second Language Resource Manual, Volume III, Part Two. Supplement 1983.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC.
This is the second part of a two-part volume of supplementary materials intended for use in the Department of State's Intensive English as a Second Language, Cultural Orientation, and Pre-Employment Training Program for United States-bound Southeast Asian refugees. It contains classroom activities developed for the English as a second language (ESL) component of the program and a bibliography and list of resource materials. The ESL activities are specified for one or more levels of language and literacy ability but can be modified or expanded. One or more teaching techniques are suggested, and each activity has also been referenced to a competency in the standardized program curriculum. The activities are prefaced by a definition of the five language and literacy levels and a list of the ESL competencies from the standardized curriculum, grouped by topic area. The topic areas include classroom orientation (identifying and introducing oneself, introducing others, greetings, ending conversations, expressing lack of understanding and need for clarification, following simple directions, finding out the English for unknown terms, and observing classroom etiquette), banking, clothing, employment, food, health, housing, post office, transportation, and the transit process from Southeast Asia to the United States.
