Reading is a key skill needed by technologists both in thetraining context and at work. The texts they have to process inreal life can vary enormously in length, complexity and genre.Readers' purposes vary from in-depth understanding to followinginstructions or searching for statistics. The reading texts inCourse Book 1 reflect real-life texts and purposes, and are allbased on authentic sources. These sources include websites, FAQs,manuals, technical magazines, textbooks, troubleshooting guides,customer service guides, catalogues, user guides, reports andspecification charts. Labelled diagrams and photographs areliberally provided to aid comprehension of technical data, andstudents are always given some background information or asked tothink about a topic (often in the Start here activity) before theystart reading, so that they are using the texts actively. Forexample they may be asked to label a diagram of a device from theirown knowledge before reading about the device and checking theirlabels. The texts use carefully controlled language and areaccompanied by simple and practical tasks such as checkinginformation, labelling a diagram, correcting details or completinga specification chart. Simple activities which highlight the use ofcohesive devices and discourse markers are introduced gradually atthis level. (Scanning or speed reading activities are introduced inCourse Book 2.) Writing
The Task section provides students with opportunities to combineand use their language, skills and technical knowledge tocommunicate in situations that reflect the world of work ortechnical training. Tasks require different combinations of skill,knowledge and procedure. Some are in fact problem-solving orcognitive exercises designed to activate their background knowledgeto help them in a reading, writing, listening or speaking activity.Others (normally coming at the end of a section) combine one ormore skills, often as information-gap activities where one studentof a pair uses data in the Extra material section at the back ofthe book (see below). Examples of tasks include using a catalogueto order equipment on the phone, or asking a worker about anaccident in order to complete an accident report. Some tasks can bedone individually, but most are done in pairs or small groups.

Section 1 introduces the names of some common hand tools such ashammer, knife, saw, spanner and ruler. A pick is a sharp pointedtool. Scissors and pliers are always plural and are often used withpair: a pair of pliers, a pair of scissors. A can opener is a toolwhich opens tin cans; a bottle opener opens bottles. Section 1 alsointroduces names for parts of tools. Many tools (such as hammersand axes) have a head, which does the heavy work of the tool. Mosttools (such as chisels and saws) have a handle which allows theuser to hold it. Longer tools (such as spades) and sports equipment(such as tennis rackets) may also have a shaft: a long, straightbar of strong material. Sharp tools usually have a blade. Theplural word jaws is used for two parts which move together like thejaws of an animal. Pliers, pincers and the chuck of a drillingmachine have jaws. The verb consists (of) is used in technicalEnglish instead of has when all the main parts of a tool or otherobject are listed, as in: A spade consists of a handle, a shaft anda blade. The verb appears in reading texts later in this book andin Book 2. If your students are ready, you could introduce ithere.
