Step Forward Canada Book 2 uses real-life situations and everyday events to teach mature or adult ESL learners the building blocks of the English language. It is a four-skill book whose comprehensive, easy-to-navigate Table of Contents gives instructors a clear picture of the lessons andidentifies where important language requirements will be taught throughout the text. The Table of Contents lays out the book's 12 units and identifies how the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs) coincide with and enhance the material being taught in the classroom. The CLBs are the cornerstone for identifying the language levels of adult English learners in Canada. Morespecifically, they allow instructors a simple, streamlined means of evaluating the English proficiency of their students based on regulated benchmarks (that act as reference points). The CLB levels covered in Step Forward Canada Book 2 range from two to five; however, there are twelve CLB levels,with higher levels being taught in more advanced texts.The body of the text includes 12 units. Each unit has five lessons and a review section. The five lessons are: vocabulary, life stories, grammar, everyday conversation, and real-life reading. Each of the five lessons covers various CLBs using everyday situations. For example, Unit four istitled "Looking for Work" and covers basic guidelines for ESL learners when job-searching, such as reading and understanding a job application, talking about education and work experience, and answering typical job interview questions. The lessons cover all four skills as they enable students totalk about required job skills (speaking), read and respond to a job ad (reading and writing), and ask and respond to interview questions (listening). Each of these valuable lessons are identified as different CLB levels throughout the footers of the book - footers which coincide with the Table ofContents - for instructors' convenience.
