I am the Senior Instructor at a school in Saudi Arabia. The Managing Director would like us to create and to offer a 'Survival' course in American English lasting between 10-20 hours. The students would be low-level, beginners or false beginners. The students will take the course prior to moving to the US.
We use the excellent Interchange/Passages series in our main(30-hour) courses. But this new course would be offered in addition to that.
Do you have any advice on how to proceed? I was thinking of a photocopiable resource on dining out, airport, post office, etc.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have for us.
