Creation of a Mini Phrase Book

The project is a creative way of finishing off the section on Tourism. It will allow the learners to reinforce their language and translation skills gained during this project as well as allowing them to use their now enhanced knowledge of tourism in Glasgow. The learners will create a mini phrase book containing basic yet important structures to help foreign visitors coming to Glasgow. Although the learners would decide the content of the phrase book, it is suggested that it should contain sections on booking a hotel room, eating out, changing money, going to the doctors etc. The learners will market their phrase book to outside agencies within the tourist sector i.e. hotels, tourist information offices, airline companies, etc.
