Airport Customs and Immigration. English as a Second Language Community Survival Skills.
Dragman, June; Hinkle, Ann
This workbook is one of a series designed for adult learners of English as a Second Language. The overall aim of this volume is that the student who is a landed immigrant in Canada and leaves the country for a vacation or family visit will be able to deal successfully with Canadian immigration and customs officials upon return to Canada. This includes giving personal information (name, address, status, destination, etc.), stating necessary facts about the time spent outside Canada, stating the regulations concerning bringing goods purchased abroad into Canada, and explaining the reasons for a trip or absence from Canada. Five units are included, on these topics: airport check-in; airport immigration; airport customs; travel trivia; and crossing the Canada-United States border by car. Each unit provides illustrations and exercises for vocabulary development and language practice at proficiency levels 1 and 2. Exercises include flashcard games, dialogues, multiple-choice questions, flight schedule reading, listening comprehension exercises, crossword puzzles, and a trivia game. Some brief notes to the teacher are included. A list of additional resources is appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
