    CeGeneral English for Aviation has been thought to be a useful tool to help learners with the daily situations in aviation.

    Th e book is aimed for false beginners to intermediate English language learners and provides a range of activities to engage students in a verisimilar communication related to their professional context.Featuring thirty thematically-based units, this book presents easy-to-use guidelines for teachers with the goals to be achieved by the learners at the beginning of each unit. Th en a 'Warm-up and Pre-Listening' activity or a 'Warm-up and Pre-Reading' activity introduces the necessary structures to prepare students for the acquisition of new vocabulary. Learners will be able to recap the vocabulary and structures presented in the Listening or Reading activity in the sections Time to Practice 1 and Time to Practice 2. While advancing, students will feel more comfortable to express themselves aft er the Drill Exercises. In the sequence, additional exercises will help students to go further and build their writing, listening or communication skills. Moreover, teachers and students will fi nd symbols to eff ectively guide them in the usage of the activities in this book. For example, when coming across the symbol , this means that they will begin a listening activity. On the other hand, the symbol will introduce a communicative activity.Learners journey toward a comprehensive understanding of each unit theme ends up with motivating communicative tasks in the Roleplay or Challenge sections.Th is book also includes an on-line audio material for the listening activities and an on-line Answer Key to the exercises proposed with the transcript of the texts used in the fi ll-in-the-blank activities. Th is content can be accessed on the books link through the website: www.cengage.com.br.In addition to all these features, there is an on-line Teachers Guide which contains hints and explanations on how to apply the techniques for every activity in order to fully motivate learners during the challenging journey to communicate in a new language.
