e-version ISBN 978-1-897100-47-9

This Comparative Framework has been designed for English as a Second Language (ESL) practitioners who want to incorporate meaningful workplace content and Essential Skills resources into adult second language classrooms and curricula. The document has been organized in the following manner: For each skill, a chart is first presented in order to provide a quick overview of the general relationship between the two scales (Global Descriptors). This initial chart is then followed by a a series of skill tables with examples of tasks and behaviours. NOTE: This is not a straight-forward alignment, but rather an intersection that reflects the complex and multi-dimensional relationship between two very different underlying scales.
