Take-Off has been designed for non-native speakers of English who are studying Engineering NVQ Level 2 and above. The aeronautical context is particularly aimed at technicians and engineers who are going on to work in the aeronautics industry.
Take-Off is an ESP course for intermediate-level students. Unlike many ESP courses, it teaches genuine transferable skills and is ideal for students who need to further their technical training in English. The focus is on skills development, using relevant contexts, with grammar taking a strong supporting role.
Reading and listening development is dealt with in the context of understanding instructions and information in technical manuals. Students develop the speaking skills of asking for and giving factual information, and the writing skills necessary to complete workplace documentation, such as accident reports and safety assessments.
Take-Off uses a communicative methodology, with graded tasks that are careful scaffolded to involve and motivate the students, providing them with a clear sense of achievement. The wide variety of texts and task types will appeal to a broad range of ages and nationalities.
There are also comprehensive word lists and a glossary of terms for student reference.
A bank of tests are provided online. Please contact us if you have purchased the book and would like access to these tests.
