DAY BY DAY has been prepared to provide oral skills practice with an emphasis on formulating and asking questions. The booklet is supplemental in nature and uses as its "theme" quotidian activities found in the United States, both job and non-job related. The illustrations help to provide the graphic key and stage setting. DAY BY DAY includes exercises with that specific purpose in mind, as well as those that encourage students to express themselves in a semi-controlled manner.
The Glossary which is appended at the end of the text is intended to facilitate ease of reference, as well as serve as a useful tool for whatever vocabulary development activities the teacher may want to undertake. Basically, DAY BY DAY has been prepared at the intermediate/high-intermediate level by maintaining a 2,000/3000-word level based on the LADDER BOOK WORD LIST. At times teachers may find that they will need to clarify or expand upon some of the definitions, hopefully by making maximum use of the contextual setting of the words.
