This is a materials development project designed for ESL students who need to know what to say and how to say it in everyday situations of American life. Using a variety of- native and non-native speakers, a videotape was used to record 50 short scenes of functions performed in English. All the functions on the videotape are titled, with a brief pause in between each one for easy reference. The dialogues are also typed to clarify what was said and can be used to make copies for the students. The written section also includes suggested activities for the benefit of the teacher using the videotape.
