Help! Can anybody give me any help - any sites, point me to any books to help run the above course? Have some company material, but not much help.

Thanks! Very Happy

Just an idea : contact construction companies, tool makers, materials suppliers (etc) and get them to send you sales literature. It's amazing what companies will give away! In the past, I've received catalogues (invaluable for vocab!), posters even video tapes.

Thanks for the ideas. Have already done as you suggest - thanks anyway! Need to actually put something together in terms of a course. I was supplied with materials from a company we are doing a course for, but the materials are all for native speakers. Any suggestions for the outline for a course for elementary students? Smile

You have to see it to believe it. It's been tried and tested on the many sites in the Atlanta area with great success.
