Dear Student,

Welcome to the English Discoveries Student Workbook Basic 1.


This workbook is especially for you! It will help you use, practice and progress in English.

Each unit of the workbook corresponds directly to a unit in the English Discoveries Basic 1 course.
You should use this workbook together with the course. For example, after you do the Listening
section from the course, we recommend you do the Listening section in the workbook. Your workbook
also contains copies of the Explore texts from the English Discoveries course, so you can refer to its
content when you are away from the computer.

Each unit in the workbook has four sections: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Grammar.
The Listening section will help you practice your listening skills. A variety of genres such as voice
mail messages, radio programs and TV video clips are included.
The Reading section will reinforce your understanding of different kinds of reading texts such as
postcards, ads, stories and newspaper articles.
The Speaking section will give you the opportunity to practice different speaking functions such as
ordering a meal in a restaurant, asking for directions, making suggestions, etc.
The Grammar section will help you practice the main points of the online unit within the context of
the unit theme. This way you will learn to use grammar structures in real-life situations.

Special emphasis has been given throughout the workbook to speaking and writing activities and you
will see that you have a lot of opportunity to express yourself in both spoken and written English.

We hope you enjoy using this program and wish you lots of luck!

Hotels for Business People


More and more people are traveling on business, and hotels
everywhere are offering business people more services. Many
hotels now offer Internet access in bedrooms and some even
provide computers! Most hotels have business centers where you
can make photocopies and send faxes. Business people also want
to stay in hotels with meeting rooms and conference halls. Business
people are often in a hurry, so they want a good, fast laundry
service and 24-hour room service. They dont have time to eat in
restaurants.
Most important they want to stay somewhere comfortable.
After all, they are working hard. They arent on vacation!
