Cuppa Tea English (pdf)
This book will be unique and target the skills that these students lack. I have worked with Korean learners for many years now and although their grammatical knowledge is sound, they need an opportunity to experiment with language, hear natural phrases and familiarise themselves with British language and pronunciation. The purpose of this workbook is to build on a student’s existing English skills and to provide practical vocabulary and phrases that can be used in the U.K.
Chapter 1: basic phrases you will hear and use when you are in a public place or when meeting someone for the first time.
Chapter 2: polite and common language which can be used in a variety of everyday situations to give and responds to opinions.
Chapter 3: By and large, students ready to live in the U.K are competent when it comes to grammar exercises, subsequently, I have chosen to include a limited section of grammar exercises to reinforce knowledge rather than teaching them from scratch. The unit aims to decipher the difference between structures and tenses which are often confused.
Chapter 4: Students can then turn their focus to pronunciation with activities aiming to work towards a British accent. (an audio attachment would benefit this chapter)
Chapter 5: As students continue to progress they may need to communicate in business-related areas, I have created activities to expand vocabulary, help with telephone skills and also writing emails.
Chapter 6: The book concludes with a writing section giving students the opportunity to write in different styles.
