Campaign.English for the military. Student's Book. Part 1
CAMPAIGN is designed to meet the English language needs of military personnel engaged in all operations, including peacekeeping, humanitarian assistance and training exercises.
CAMPAIGN combines the rigorous language analysis of a good English for Specific Purposes course with the teachability of a good General English course. It deals with real issues that concern servicemen and women. Units range from Military Technology to Sports and Fitness to Peacekeeping and Peacekeepers. There are topics and texts from a variety of international military contexts, including the US, the UK, NATO and the UN. Throughout, learning of key specialised military lexis goes hand in hand with the development of general language competence through systematic skills practice and a carefully planned grammar syllabus.
CAMPAIGN 1 takes students from false beginner/elementary to a level between 1 and 2 of NATO's STANAG 6001 system of levels (equivalent to the Council of Europe's Waystage level).
CAMPAIGN 1 provides 200 hours of study materials, made up of 120 hours of class work in the Student's Book backed up with 80 hours of revision in the Workbook. Each of the 14 Student's Book units is organised around three key points. Alpha introduces the topic and key vocabulary of the whole unit. For an example of an alpha section, see Unit 14, pages 134-135.
Delta focuses on everyday English - non-military situations which will come up during a foreign posting, for example, shopping or going out with friends. For an example of a delta section, see Unit 5, pages 48-49.
Golf revises the language from the unit and provides extra integrated skills practice. For an example of a golf section, see Unite, pages 82-83.
