Technical English for Geosciences by Brigitte Markner-JägerThis is a language learning tool for English for specific purposes. Texts are taken from various literature sources (from books, magazines, brochures, catalogues, websites, etc.). Topics are chosen from the vast field of geosciences. The book is designed as a text and workbook. In addition to texts, tables, graphs, students will find various exercises in 38 units. Units can be studied separately according to students’ interests. They are sorted by content, not language difficulty.
This guide is organized by blue tabs that run across the top of each page. Below is a description of the principle tabs on this guide.
