Objective 

1.   The course is for students with at lease a level of CEF B1 (equivalent to 387 points on the TOEIC test).    

2.   This course is for university students from all departments who expect to become   professionals who are required to travel in their jobs. 

3.   While students may be able to function in English within their own fields, too often they   just don’t have the language skills to survive in every-day situations like those encountered   while traveling.  Therefore, the objective of this course is to focus on real-life situations   and present them in realistic contexts. 

4.   Upon completion of this course, students would be expected to be able to use the language   of socializing and survival in certain situations; i.e., ordering in a restaurant, making hotel   reservations, using public transportation, going through immigration and customs at an   international airport, etc. 

5.   Ultimately, the goal of this course is to give students the knowledge and confidence   necessary to survive in the social and economic milieu of international travel and its interaction with speakers of English.   

Course outline and contentSurvival English for Travelers is a course for all university students who will be required, in their professional life, to travel internationally and interact with speakers of English.  The course will cover a number of real-life situations that professionals would encounter while traveling for their jobs.  These every-day situations include not only social interactions but the practical transactions as well that all international travelers have to deal with while making their way in a global economy. 

   The content of the course is derived from Survival English: International Communication for Professional People by Peter Viney as well as other sources.  The textbook contains forty-eight units that deal with a variety of topics related to international travel.  Among these units that teach language, grammar, and cultural differences are topics related to using public transportation, checking in and out of hotels, ordering food in different types of restaurants, making various types of reservations (theater, flight, hotel, restaurant, etc.), understanding time zone differences, the stages for taking international flights, attending business events, attending social events, etc.  The comprehensiveness of the content of the textbook is one of its greatest assets for this type of course, and students should benefit greatly from it.
