National Workplace Literacy Program. Garment-Related Bilingual (English & Chinese) T.V. Broadcast Lessons. Book II: Episodes 16-27.
Chinatown Manpower Project, Inc., New York, NY.
This publication contains a series of 12 garment-related bilingual (English and Chinese) television broadcast lessons that were produced to augment an earlier series of 15 lessons. The objective of these television lessons is to teach garment-related English terminology to the garment workers who cannot attend classes in the National Workplace Literacy Program of Chinatown Manpower Project, Inc., New York, New York, and to arouse their interest in learning more English. Each lesson is approximately 10-15 minutes in length. The lessons usually begin with a hostess introducing basic garment-related English terms. This is followed by a real life story incorporating the new vocabulary and its usage. At the end of the lesson is a review of the garment-related terminologies and a test. To facilitate the learning process, all the lessons have English and Chinese subtitles. Topics of the lessons--Episodes 16-27--are as follows: colors and patterns; garment-related tools and sewing machine attachments (parts I and II); safety at work; health at work; workers' benefits; workers' rights; reading a pay stub; job search; job application form; job interview; and talking with co-workers. Appendixes include test answer keys and glossary. (YLB)
