2. 2 CONTEXT Expansion of Q. Roo University E.g., Medical school More and more hard English texts to read Big need for high level of reading ability

3. 3 What happens if you don’t teach vocab? 2. What & how much vocab should you teach? 3. How can you teach vocab?

4. 4 What text looks like if you know all the words In 1978/1979, New Zealand produced 9.15 million cubic tons of exotic logs of which 59 percent was exported (as newsprint, pulp, sawn timber, logs, and so on). Productive capacity is expected to remain at about this level throughout most of this decade. But based on volumes of wood which will become available from existing forests and planned new plantings, production will progressively increase to 20 million cubic meters a year by the turn of the century. If current planting rates are maintained with planting targets satisfied in each region and the forests milled at the earliest opportunity, the available wood supplies could further increase to about 36 million cubic meters annually in the period 2001-2015. The additional available wood supply should greatly exceed domestic requirements, even if much is used for energy production. Even if used in an unprocessed form, the increasing wood supplies will require a larger labour force, an improved roading network, and expanded transport and processing facilities. If the trees are to be exported, then certain investments must be made. They will include investments in: logging machinery and equipment; logging trucks, and other vehicles required for the transport of processed products; upgrading and maintaining roads (or rail or coastal shipping facilities where appropriate; and port facilities. The list could be extended to include overseas shipping, and accommodation and township facilities for forestry workers. Other capital costs will depend on the degree of processing and the proportion of total production that is processed. At the potential maximum of 36 million cubic meters per annum there would be sufficient timber to allow the construction of a number of pulp and newsprint mills costing up to 4000 million dollars at 1978 prices (excluding upwards of another 1000 million for extra electricity). Although the potential total expenditure is large over the next three years (possibly approaching 6000-7000 million dollars inclusive of harvesting and transport investment), the incremental requirements would probably average only 2-2.5 percent of total investment in all sectors, though it would be higher in the years of most rapid expansion. It may well be that the best rate of return will be on exported logs. But there will be pressure for further processing to give more employment and earn more overseas funds. 0 GAPS IN 374 WORDS (0% GAPS)
