This handout is intended to be used in the English Language II course at the School of Languages, National University of Córdoba, Argentina. It is organized into four modules: Making a Living, Choosing a Career, Different Kinds of Jobs and Skills and Experience in Work, Job Interviews. Each module includes a variety of reading, writing, listening and speaking tasks dealing with the main topics included in one of the units in the current English Language II syllabus: The World of Work. This third edition of the handout is based on previous versions piloted in the courses we have taught and includes some activities for students to take advantage of online resources. As most present-day language teachers, we view language learning as a holistic, integrated process, and we consider students active participants in the learning process; therefore, we hope that students will engage in the activities suggested in this handout from a critical, independent and strategic perspective. To this end, we present a variety of learning tasks intended to foster communicative and strategic language learning as well as critical thinking and collaborative language development. Explicit reference to learning strategies is made in each module to help students become more successful and autonomous language learners. All in all, this material aims at providing EFL learners with an opportunity to understand not only what they can learn in the language classroom, but also how they can learn the language more effectively and efficiently.
