Linkages: A Content-Based Integrated Skills Program
Linkages is a content-based, integrated skills text for high-intermediate ESL students who plan to study at an American college or university. The readings in the text form the base for the presentation of content. For the most part, they are authentic and include material from college texts, general audience texts, periodicals, and literary works. Lectures, discussions, and other communicative activities, as well as writing tasks help to expand the students' understanding of the content and to develop their language skills. The topics presented are drawn from the fields of American history and culture, psychology, sociology, and business.
