The process of expanding the general and vocational English- as-a-Second-Language (ESL) curriculum for employees of a hotel is described, and related materials are presented. Emphasis was on improvement of instruction for groups with varied levels of English proficiency. Instructional program development included creation of a computer lab and classes in computer use, both general (keyboarding, computer literacy) and for specific purposes (word processing, literacy education, ESL instruction). Techniques used in creating a supportive lab environment and in teaching in these areas are outlined. The program has been found successful and highly attractive to employees. A packet of reproducible masters for instructional handouts and a copy of the personal computer manual are included. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
