For each unit, the following are specified: technical topics, tasks, strategies, functions/gambits, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, workplace knowledge, essential skills, and language skills. As well, resources are suggested for many of the suggested teaching points, as well as for the content area of each unit.
