Voorwoord Dit is het leer-werkboek A1 Crash Course van de methode 20/20 Business English voor niveau 3-4. De titel Crash Course houdt in dat je heel veel leert tijdens een korte maar intensieve periode. De Crash Course is vooral gemaakt voor studenten die geen of nauwelijks Engels kennen. Maar het boek kan ook gebruikt worden om je Engels weer op te pakken. Het boek is verdeeld in vijf units die gaan over vertrouwde onderwerpen uit het dagelijks leven zoals hobby’s, familie, vrienden, school en werk. Het is een echt leer-werkboek. Er staan veel oefeningen in en door het maken van die oefeningen leer je meteen de theorie. De antwoorden en de uitwerkingen van de oefeningen kun je in het boek zelf schrijven, zodat je altijd je werk bij de hand hebt. Na elke unit volgt een Round up, waarin je kunt laten zien dat je de geleerde stof beheerst en dat je communicatief vaardiger bent geworden. De laatste unit eindigt met een Case. Bij het maken van de case kun je laten zien dat je het boek kent. De methode 20/20 Business English is bedoeld om zelfstandig leren en werken makkelijker te maken. Als je de aanwijzingen in dit leer-werkboek volgt en de opdrachten naar behoren uitvoert, zul je merken dat je veel vragen over Engels zelf kunt beantwoorden en problemen zelf kunt oplossen. Je docent heeft alle uitwerkingen. Bespreek met haar/hem of je over deze uitwerkingen mag beschikken. Als je alle vijf de units, de round ups en de case aandachtig hebt doorgewerkt, zul je merken dat je je in veel situaties al heel goed kunt redden. Je hebt veel Engelse woorden geleerd, je kunt eenvoudige gesprekken voeren, allerhande teksten lezen en eenvoudige opdrachten schrijven. Keep up the work, and don’t give up. Katrin Overgoor


Gebruiksaanwijzing De hoofdstukken in dit boek heten units. In elke unit oefen je de vaardigheden Speaking interaction, Reading, Writing en Listening. Daarnaast is er aandacht voor taalregels bij Language support en belangrijke woorden in de Personal word file. Aan het eind van elke unit vind je een samenvatting in de checklist en een afsluitende opdracht in de vorm van een Round up of Case.

Speaking interaction In dit boek vind je veel oefeningen die je helpen een eenvoudig gesprek in het Engels te voeren over vertrouwde onderwerpen. Vaak vind je voorbeelden hiervan in de luisteroefeningen bij dit boek.

Reading Deze rubriek bevat leesteksten over dagelijkse onderwerpen. Je leert eenvoudige teksten te lezen en te begrijpen. Bij deze teksten horen verschillende opdrachten.

Writing Elke unit heeft een praktische schrijfopdracht die je herkent uit de dagelijkse praktijk.

Listening Met de vele luisteroefeningen oefen je je luistervaardigheid, vergroot je je woordenschat en hoor je een groot aantal voorbeeldgesprekken, die je zelf kunt gebruiken in gesprekken.

Language support Hier vind je regels en tips om correct Engels te spreken en te schrijven.

Personal word file Hiermee kun je zelf een lijst van woorden aanmaken uit de voorafgaande unit. Zo kun je die nog eens goed oefenen.

Checklist Dit is een overzicht van wat je in de voorafgaande unit allemaal geleerd hebt.

Round up en Case De Round up is de afsluitende oefening van een unit waarin je kunt toepassen wat je geleerd hebt. De Case is uitgebreider dan de Round up en bestaat uit een aantal taken, die je samen met een ander tot een goed einde moet brengen.

g Language support Exercise 11 A and an. You use a and an when you say what a person or thing is. For example: I am a student. Karen is a teacher. A dictionary is a book. A cat is an animal. An hour is a period of sixty minutes. 1 2

You use a with words that begin with b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z. You use an with words that begin with a, e, i, o, u.

59


Unit 3 My school

For example: u can sound like ‘uh’ in uncle and then you use an. But it can also sound like ‘yew’ in uniform and then you use a. Also, when one of the letters from group 1 sounds like one of the letters from group 2 you use an. For example: h can sound like ‘ha’ in handle and then you use a. But it can also sound like ‘ow’ in hour and then you use an. It’s not as difficult as it sounds. You’ll get the hang of it! Fill in the gaps with a or an. 1
