The lessons are designed to give newly-arrived, limited-English-proficient Vietnamese immigrants to the United States linguistic and practical skills for gaining employment. An introductory section, in both English and Vietnamese, outlines the origins and design of the materials. Ten lessons follow, each accompanied by a teacher's guide giving an overview, key work list, and suggestions for classroom procedures. The lessons, primarily in English, contain a list of objectives, a list of key words with Vietnamese translations and context sentences, text on the topic, phrases to be used for discussion, and exercises. Lesson topics include: the job search (help-wanted ads and signs, employment agencies, networking through friends and family, writing letters, using the telephone); using the want-ads; filling out a job application; writing business letters (application, cover, inquiry, thank-you); writing a resume; the job interview; Social Security and the W-4 form; reading the W-2 statement; reading a paycheck; and using and reconciling checking accounts. An answer key and bilingual English-Vietnamese glossary are appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
