Being Canadian - Student Book w/ Answer Key and CD

Being Canadian - Student Book w/ Answer Key and CD

Being Canadian, the third edition, is a book of readings that promotes language development and Canadian citizenship skills and knowledge. Using a topical approach, the book deals with the themes of social, cultural, and political history; physical and political geography; the structure of the parliamentary system and the electoral process; and the nature of the economy.

  • Includes sensitive issues and immigrant viewpoints 
  • Presents both positive and negative aspects of issues

Step Forward Canada: 1 (Student's Book)

Step Forward Canada: 1 (Student's Book)

Step Forward Canada 1 uses real-life situations and everyday events to teach mature or adult ESL learners the building blocks of the English language. It is a four-skill book whose comprehensive, easy-to-navigate Table of Contents gives instructors a clear picture of the lessons and identifies where important language requirements will be taught throughout the text. 

The Table of Contents lays out the book's 12 units and identifies how the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs) coincide with and enhance the material being taught in the classroom. The CLBs are the cornerstone for identifying the language levels of adult English learners in Canada. More specifically, they allow instructors a simple, streamlined means of evaluating the English proficiency of their students based on regulated benchmarks (that act as reference points). The CLB levels covered in Step Forward Canada Book 1 range from one to four (the most basic language levels); in total, however, there are twelve CLB levels, with higher levels being taught in more advanced texts.

The body of the text includes 12 units. Each unit has five lessons and a review section. The five lessons are: vocabulary, life stories, grammar, everyday conversation, and real-life reading. Each of the five lessons covers various CLBs using everyday situations, and each lesson is identified with CLB level for instructors' convenience.

Readership : Introductory level ESL text for mature or adult learners.
