Introduction

English for Work
The books in this series present and practise spoken English and practical writing for everyday communication; they feature key words and expressions which will help you in a wide range of work situations. The target language is introduced through short dialogues and texts, and developed in language notes and practice exercises.
The dialogues are recorded on an accompanying CD. The accents featured are predominantly British English, but comments on American usage are included in the notes.
At the back of each book there is a glossary which contains highlighted language from the dialogues. Translations of the glossary can be downloaded, in selected languages, from the Longman website, www.longman-elt.com.
The series is intended for pre-intermediate/intermediate level learners.
Everyday Technical English
Everyday Technical English is suitable for people already working in an industrial or technical environment, and for students in adult education classes, schools, colleges and universities.
The book concentrates on the core everyday technical language used across a variety of industries. We have tried to keep to a minimum the use of language related to specific industries.
A small amount of simple industry-specific language is sometimes used, however, to give a context to a dialogue.
In order to widen your knowledge of the language you might need in your work, you may find it useful to refer to the other titles in the English for Work series:
Everyday Business English Business Presentations Everyday Business Writing
How to use the book
You can work through the book from start to finish or choose a unit depending on your work needs.
Start a unit by listening to and repeating the Useful phrases. Then listen to the dialogues and study the accompanying notes. Certain phrases have been highlighted that have particular language features associated with them. However, it is worthwhile noting other phrases that appear in the dialogues, which are equally important and can also be seen as key phrases. There is a word list at the back of the book which gives simple explanations in English of less familiar vocabulary items. You can also use a dictionary if necessary to check your understanding of the language presented.
On the notes pages you will find boxes containing notes on the key differences between everyday British and American usage.
After studying the dialogues and notes, work through the exercises. You can refer back to the dialogues and notes as necessary and also use a dictionary to check any new language. Answers are given at the end of the book.
Finally, refer to the glossary at the back of the book and test yourself on your understanding of key expressions. Write translations of these expressions, again using a dictionary if necessary. Visit the English for Work page on the Longman website, www.longman-elt.com where you will find translations of the key phrases in a number of languages.
You can use this book for self study or with a teacher. Good luck and enjoy building your 'Everyday Technical English' skills!
