English for the Wine Industry
Manual + CD
English for the Wine Industry is intended for Spanish speakers interested in acquiring a basic knowledge of English and its application to the wine industry. Beginning with the first unit, you will find vocabulary and situations pertinent to the vineyard and the winery allowing you to apply what you learn. Topics include soil preparation, irrigation, planting, pruning, disease and pest control, harvesting, crushing, winery sanitation, filling paperwork and safety.
The textbook, illustrated with helpful drawings, is written in Spanish and English, and begins by addressing the essential questions, “Where are you” and “What are you doing”.
As students progress through the 20 units, they master basic sentence structure while utilizing a wine-based vocabulary as they learn to say ” I am in the cellar” or “He unplugs the pump”. Time, dates, measurements, practical working situations in the vineyard and winery and safety topics are covered, and exercises guide students in translating notices and understanding applications as well as talking about wine glasses, pruning shears and lunch breaks.
ESL teacher David Allred used the materials she developed. “It is an excellent text with many important wine-industry specific vocabulary words and phrases, Allred said. “It served as an effective structure for our course, and the students were engaged because the material was relevant to their jobs. Most texts are for learners just desiring to get by in the community, but Josefina’s is aimed primarily at winery-based English language fluency. I would highly recommend it.” Another good compliment to this book is our English-Spanish Dictionary for the Wine Industry.
