The Workplace Skills Builder
integrates the workplace topics from the best–selling Oxford Picture
with practice activities. A focus on workplace vocabulary prepares learners for career success.
Presentation and practice provides learners with all the resources they need in one place.
The Workplace Skills Builder seamlessly incorporates visuals, exercises, and downloadable activities from
the internet to create a unique learning experience. The vocabulary introduced in this version of the Oxford
Picture Dictionary begins with the general workplace and continues on to cover hospitality, food service,
retail, healthcare, office, manufacturing, construction, and agricultural settings. Workplace vocabulary is presented
in clear, vibrant illustrations that meet the needs of today’s language learner. These richly contextualized
images will improve vocabulary acquisition. Practice activities allow students to put the words immediately
to use, while personalization exercises will encourage them to apply the vocabulary to their work lives, making
the new words relevant. The web address for online activities appears right on the page, making it easy to
find audio files and encourage independent practice outside the classroom. Since audio and videos are downloadable,
students can use them to study anytime, anywhere.
