Synopsis

Functioning in English Student's Book by David Mendelsohn, Rose Laufer, Jura Seskus

This intermediate level book is a communicatively-based text for use in teaching spoken English to non-native speakers who are adults or young adults. The pedagogic approach is functional/notional, aiming at meeting the communicative needs of the learner. It teaches both the linguistic rules (grammar, phonology) and the sociolinguistic rules (appropriateness, level of formality) through multiple activities divided into ten units for the speaking component of an EFL/ESL course. A detailed teacher's manual is available, which also provides suggestions for writing activities as follow-up work to those units that lend themselves to this.
