Hello colleagues, Today in my beginning ESL class we did an activity on reading want ads with a focus on the abbreviations that are often used, e.g., F/T = full time, P/T = part time, exp. = experience, etc. I hesitated a bit to do this activity since I thought it might be too difficult, but I decided to go ahead with it. We worked through the ads and the abbreviations together as a class. Several students readily called out answers and seemed to fully comprehend the language.
