Workplace Plus , an innovative four-level standards-based English course, readies adults for self-sufficiency in the three principal areas of their lives: the workplace, the community, and the home. Workplace Plus integrates the CASAS life skill competencies and SCANS Competencies and Foundation Skills with a complete language syllabus and relevant and practical social language. The Grammar Booster provides extra practice beyond each lesson. Workplace Plus 2 , by Joan Saslow, is written for high-beginning learners. It rapidly enables them to: understand spoken and written general employment-related language. communicate in their own words outside of an English class. understand the culture and behavioral expectations of their new environment and workplace.
