This book has been written for students of Physics and Computer Sciences/ studying at the at the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science at B2 (upper intermediate) and C1 (advanced) level of English, who would like to improve and develop their reading, listening and speaking skills in the field of physics. Students of other sciences might also find it useful in expanding their technical language.
The book presents a number of texts and some recordings illustrating the variety of physics applied in almost every field of science. The materials come from British and American sources therefore, the original spelling of words has been kept. It contains six parts, which include a variety of activities aimed at technical vocabulary practice and developing communicative skills. Each unit can be treated as a whole or analysed selectively depending on the students’ needs and purposes.
There is and additional Photocopiable Material Section included which can be used both by teachers and students.
The Appendix section provides students with some valuable information.
The answer key is included at the back of the book, thus it can be used as a self-study material.
The author’s aim is to encourage students not only to learn new technical vocabulary but also to apply some useful terminology in spoken language.
