Contemporary English second edition has refined the content and skills adult ESL students need to know to survive and thrive living in the United States. The emphasis on grammar, vocabulary, graphic literacy, critical thinking skills, life skills, and workplace skills has all been retained and presented in meaningful contexts through topics of high interest to adult students. Lessons are self-contained, remaining appropriate for both standard and open enrollment situations.
Student Workbooks have been designed for individual independent study or classroom work. Vocabulary and grammar presented in the student books are featured in the workbooks with additional practice. The Spotlight boxes from the students books are reproduced in the workbooks then followed by practive exercises that range from simple controlled format to open-ended critical thinking activities. Each workbook unit concludes with Read, Think, and Write activities that combine the grammar and vocabulary of the unit into topic-based critical thinking tasks.
