English as a Second Language for Chemical Operators.
This document is one of a series of student workbooks developed for workplace skill development courses or workshops by Mercer County Community College (New Jersey) and its partners. Designed to help chemical plant employees who are nonnative English speakers, the course covers basic English speaking and writing skills needed to communicate effectively at work and outside the workplace. Much of the vocabulary covered and the reading, writing, and role playing assignments were developed for workers at Rhein Chemie in New Jersey. The materials for the course include a course outline, objectives, a topical outline, and 20 lessons for English as a Second Language. Lessons consist of objectives, information, and exercises. Topics covered are as follows: verb tenses, asking questions, measurement, prepositions, directions, complex sentences, possessives, reading skills, conditionals, use of verbs, quantity, and countable and noncountable nouns. An appendix contains a review of verbs. (KC)
