I am teaching English to men working on the repair of aircraft interiors, walls,...?
...toilets,etc and I need vocabulary/books
I am an English teacher in Thailand and my students work as interior maintenance engineers/fitters, they need a good level of English to communicate with airline reps. They are experienced in their work but lack the working vocabulary in English, and as I am an aviation moron I need books to help me teach them, they deal with all aspects of interior maintenance and repair.
Any and all help or suggestions will be much appreciated.

make up words to suit your needs
works for me, although that's when I'm speaking to my english friends
Well, if you're an english teacher and you don't know stuff, then you're not a very good teacher, are you? Didn't they teach you that in teacher school.
(I'm a high school student)
Don't give homework, encourage them and no assignments
they have better things to do, like having a life. You shouldn't be here, you should be preparing a fun-filled lesson. Simple. If we suffer, you suffer. That's why you became a teacherSource(s): wikipedia

You are teaching them English so my airline can outsource my job to Thailand. It would be much appreciated if you wouldn't do that. The sooner you teach them English, the sooner I lose my job.
