Beginning English Day by Day.
This book aims to meet the needs of students who are beginning to learn English and to help them reach such goals as gaining an education, finding a job, continuing on to higher education, or functioning better in everyday life in the United States. The book stresses the basic language skills of vocabulary development, grammar, reading, writing, and pronunciation in the context of life situations. Basic and higher thinking skill exercises are included. The instructor is encouraged to have students connect their own real-life experiences with the text material. The 12 sequential units are as follows: identification, time, money, family and community, parts of the body, health, food, clothing, housing, jobs, transportation, and communication. Each unit includes specific competencies, grammar lessons, and pronunciation review. An addendum provides extra information on such subjects as print and cursive letters, irregular verbs, and measurements that can be applied throughout the book.
