"Technical English" is a two-level course for students in technical or vocational education, and for company employees in training at work. It covers the core language and skills that students need to communicate successfully in all technical and industrial specialisations. Level 1 is for students with a basic knowledge of general English who now require an elementary course in English for specific purposes (CEF level Al). Level 2 is for students who have completed Level 1, or have an elementary knowledge of general English, and now require a pre-intermediate course in English for specific purposes (CEF level A2). Technical concepts are clearly presented using motivating texts and clear illustrations. Topics reflect the latest developments in technology and are relevant to students' needs. The course uses core language common to a range of specialisations. Grammar is regularly practised and there is a comprehensive grammar summary section. The Companion Website has further industry-specific material to support the Course Book and the Workbook.
