Abstract: While ESL teachers cannot eliminate linguistic difficulties, with an awareness of the factors involved it is possible to minimise the confusion of their students. But most of all it provides business communication within the framework of our students' daily activities.

The seminar indicates a fundamental difference in objectives between language learning for certification and learning for live use. The seminars are given as a teacher inservice for Chinese English teachers in Zhengzhou, Henan, China. A collection of ten activities which the seminar presenter has invented or borrowed, and found to be popular with students. Short Texts From Oz can thus be used with foreign language students as well as immigrants.
Most of the scripts were written for industrial students in the city of Melbourne, Australia.
I am putting it in the public domain now (2015) as a possible source of ideas for anyone who might find it useful.
In some ways these testing companies can be thought of as the Big Pharma corporations (i.e. Whereas accuracy is an absolute goal within schooling contexts, its value on the street is highly variable. Its context was the pending introduction of the New Apprenticeship Scheme by Australian state governments at the time of writing. It is a static site (no comments etc.) using simple technology, so Thor has begun to gradually duplicate material on a number of blogs, which should be a more interactive experience. Much more rarely (unfortunately) there may be a genuine interest in the real substance of what an indivual knows and has investigated in his field. The research essays supporting this were also reviewed by an external examiner (Macquarie University).
One of the lessons one learns in education over the course of a career is that what goes around, comes around again sooner or later. It would be an abuse of language to call them an academic paper in any finished sense, and the absence of referencing reinforces that. The focus is on foreign language teaching, but most of the elements also apply to other fields of study.
This short paper is a colloquial discussion that begins with a student inquiry about learning idioms and progresses to the realization that idioms are an indeterminate category which raise deep questions about the nature of collocation and cognitive language processing. It itemizes a range of syntactic and semantic phenomena, considering in each cas how the rule or pattern might pose a difficulty for some learners. This reform was essentially politically driven, and designed to redistribute much apprentice training away from purpose built institutions (TAFEs) into workplaces.


Most institutions today would document this one year program as a coursework Masters degree. The university and its business partner subsequently chose to continue to program with staff hired at an approximately 30% lower salary - a situation unfortunately common in the TESOL industry].
Like Big Pharma they are subject to constant challenges to their ethics and reliability from within and without, and like Big Pharma they are rather prone to corrupt the issues which they were designed to assist with. There are, after all, whole academic faculties devoted to the study of testing, though unfortunately most teachers have never heard of them.
This paper has been published for a number of years now, and the writer has become aware that many teachers themselves have found it a useful aid in preparing and presenting course material.
Since the scheme would inevitably place a greater burden on apprentices' personal learning resources, especially their literacy, it was important to analyze the existing situation.
Those interested in this extra range of knowledge are advised to also look to section b) below. The ideas here might be good or bad or adaptable for other uses, depending upon your needs.
The possible corruption of language learning by the requirements of testing is known as wash-back.
Still, for those in a hurry, these reflections of my own may crystallize some of the questions which, sooner or later, will trouble any thoughtful teacher. The seminars were given as a teacher inservice for Chinese English teachers in Zhengzhou, Henan, China. It was noted that apprenticeship was a diverse category of skills studies that required varying levels of literacy. For those unfamiliar with the Solomon Islands language and education scene, this will also serve as a partial introduction.
In heavily male dominated apprenticeship fields, the majority, there had always been severe weaknesses in general literacy. The analysis in this paper is a tentative attempt to manipulate the wash-back from an international test in a manner which actually assists genuine language acquisition. These trends were likely to accelerate as students moved away from an environment where remedial assistance with literacy or trade skills was no longer easily available.
