Abstract

This project is a teaching resource packet for ESL/EFL teachers who are interested in showing their students what American college life is like. The project is based on twelve situations which were selected because they seem to be the most typical situations that a foreign student would probably interact in while studying and living at an American college. There are two parts to this project: a set of slides with 5-7 consists of units for each of the situations and a text which consists of units for each of the situations. Each of these units is composed of three sections: 1. descriptions of each of the slides 2. a set of short dialogues that can be used in each of the situations as well as some footnotes to the teacher on some of the interesting sociolinguistic features that are in some of the dialogues 3. a list of suggested activities and discussion questions which the teacher may work on with the students in further exploring the cultural and linguistic elements that can be found in each of the dialogues and slides.
