    Resources for teaching adults English(TESOL

    Hi,
    I have recently moved to China and have been offered a job teaching English to adults. These are adults who have studied at university and need English for their job. The company is a global one. The majority of employees are Chinese, with a few English speaking foreigners. As the company is a global one there are many visitors who in the main speak only English.
    My job is to support the English program. I will be taking two lessons each week and planning for another person to do the follow up lessons. (There is a beginner and advanced group.)I would like to purchase some resouces and need some advice on what would be the most suitable. Can you advise me?

    My advice - and I have performed a similar role in Wuxi - is to purchase some course books. I used headway. It is a personal choice, but I find them easy to use.

    Beware of the label 'advanced'....
