Description: English for Logistics covers a range of subjects associated with the logistics industry. Learners in management-level positions will find their needs catered for, just as much as those in warehousing or administration. Units from the book work independently and can be selected according to the needs and interests of the course participants. English for Logistics is also ideal for self-study.
Each unit begins with a Starter, which consists of a short exercise or a quiz and serves as an introduction to the topic of the unit. Practical exercises, listening extracts, industry-specific texts as well as photos and illustrations help you to acquire key vocabulary and expressions. Realistic role-plays give you the opportunity to put all you have learned into practice. Each unit closes with an Output activity, an article related to the topic of the unit followed by questions for reflection and discussion. Finally the book finishes up with a fun quiz to Test yourself! on some of the facts and figures discussed over the previous eight units.
The MultiROM contains all the Listening extracts from the book. These can be played through the audio player on your computer, or through a conventional CD player. In order to give yourself extra listening practice, listen to it in your car. The Interactive exercises let you review your learning by doing Useful phrases. Vocabulary, and Communication exercises on your computer. This will be particularly valuable if you are using the book for self-study.
In the appendix of English for Logistics you will find the Partner Files for the role-plays and the Answer key so that you can check your own answers if you are working alone. There are also Transcripts of the listening extracts, an A-Z word list, and a list of Useful phrases and vocabulary. Finally, we have included a Glossary of acronyms and abbreviations and a Weights and measures conversion chart; these can be used as handy references at work.
