"No one can discount the reality that in today’s world, more than ever, employability skills are very essential... One’s qualification enables a person to secure a job, but it is his/her skills that would nourish his/her worth in the organization. It is from this realization that this book was born."
With both teachers and students in mind, the author has carefully and strategically constructed lessons which creatively link English Language instruction and the essential ‘job getting skills’: Adaptability, Goal Setting, and Working with others.
Each unit comprises of clearly defined learning goals with realistic time duration. Every activity is well thought out, engaging, and some are patterned to real life scenarios which can hone other skills and capabilities like problem solving, planning and organizing, communication, teamwork, initiative etc. Exercises and games vary and are customizable.
At the end of each chapter, assessment guide is provided for the instructors. There are also valuable pieces of advice drawn from the author's personal experiences.
I was really amused with the role-playing and the exciting treasure hunt activities. As a freelance tutor, I can practically apply these exercises. I think the book needs a little improvement on its visual appeal (tables, pictures, diagrams,cover etc) and included support material for the Grammar Practice Section would be awesome.
At a glance, this e-book may seem simple, yet it's well structured, inventive, straight forward, with solid, practical, and interesting content. It is a useful tool in instilling work readiness and confidence to students.
