"I Don't Speak English...but I Understand You." Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening Activities for Hispanic Adults in a Community-Based English as a Second Language Program.
McGovern, Jane
This collection of language activities for the Hispanic adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) student emphasizes real life vocabulary and skills. It is addressed to the student, except where a facilitator is needed for dictation exercises. Nonetheless, an instructor's help is necessary for the manual's use. Vocabulary lists in Spanish and English are on these topics: emergency phone calls, arranging for and maintaining utilities services, applying to purchase or rent a home, and applying for a job. A blank job application and lease form are included. Short paragraphs, written by former ESL students, on such topics as drugs, aging parents, disciplining children, and the differences between food in the United States and Puerto Rico also appear. They are intended to stimulate discussion and form the basis for activities in pronunciation, comprehension, writing, and making inferences. (CML)
