This book follows the story of four adults who meet at a career counselling workshop: Sandra, Binta, Amir and Amélie. They are different ages and have different backgrounds, needs and interests. Like you, they all have important decisions to make concerning their future studies and work. We hope that the dialogues and activities in this book will help you make your own decisions in the near future.

Cognates Cognates are words that have the same (or almost the same) meaning in English and in French. There are many cognates in French and English. Recognizing cognates is an important strategy that can help you learn the language. Preference Celebration

Do you have a preference? Let’s have a celebration!

Avez-vous une préférence? Faisons une célébration!

False Cognates False cognates are words in English and French that look similar and sound similar, but don’t have the same meaning. Here is a list of some false cognates.

Communication and Learning Strategies

Sometimes you may find it easy to interact, read and write in English. At other times, you may feel it is very difficult.

Don’t panic! When you learn a new language, there are things you can do to help you face the difficulties. These are called communication and learning strategies. They can be learned and practised to make learning a new language such as English easier and more fun. Communication and Learning Strategies are: • actions you do • attitudes you take • steps you follow • techniques you use

… to help you learn and use English.

In this section, the meaning of each communication and learning strategy is explained.

There are many different Communication and Learning Strategies. The most important ones are listed and explained in the following pages.

Throughout the book, you will find short lists of strategies you can use, like this one:

Strategies Used Inferring Scanning for specific information Planning steps related to a task

This list reminds you about the importance of using strategies as you do the activity. It also recommends strategies that may be useful for the activity you are about to do. These steps will help you to learn English:

1 Look at the list of strategies before you start the activity. 2 When you have finished the activity, think about which strategies you used most.

3 Put a check mark (✓) beside the strategies you think were helpful. Of course, you will probably use other strategies as well. The following pages explain each of the strategies more fully.

Grammar

Present Progressive for Future

The Present Progressive can be used to express fixed future plans. Review how to form the Present Progressive tense on page 46 of the book Joining a Community (in the Connecting Doors series). There is no difference between using the Present Progressive tense and to be + going to when we talk about the future. Are you meeting the others tomorrow? = Are you going to meet the others tomorrow? No, I’m not meeting them tomorrow. = No, I’m not going to meet them tomorrow. I’m meeting them on Thursday at 2 p.m. = I’m going to meet them on Thursday at 2 p.m.

Grammar Practice Fill in the blanks with the Present Progressive tense using the verb in brackets. You can use contractions if possible. Use a negative form if you see “neg.”

Example: What are

you doing (do)

tomorrow?

Remember when the verb ends in -e, you have to remove the  -e before adding -ing.

1 She 2

(buy) a tree to plant in her yard this afternoon. they

3 When

4 He

7 He

1 “Ah, that feels good.” 2 “Time to go, eh?”

d) Sorry

5 “Hmm. I’m not so sure.” 6 “Oh! You’re here!”

f) Don’t you agree?

7 “Shall we go now?” “Uh-huh.”

g) You surprised me.

8 “Nah, I don’t want to do that.” 9 “Wow, that’s cool!”

a) I need time to think now.

h) No

i) Yes

BIXI BIXI – a combination of the words “bicycle” and “taxi” – is the name of Montreal’s public bike-sharing system, the first large-scale program of its kind in North America. Riders can rent a bicycle from one station and return it to another. The project is aimed at encouraging people to be active and use environmentally friendly means of transportation. The system was launched on May 12, 2009, with 3,000 bicycles and 300 stations located around Montreal’s central core. It soon expanded to 5,000 bicycles and 400 stations. After implementing the system in Montreal, BIXI began expanding within Canada and around the world. BIXI systems are now found in Boston, London, Melbourne, Ottawa/Gatineau, Québec City, Toronto, Washington D.C. and New York City. The BIXI has won numerous awards for its unique design.
