File Size: 12.19 Mb

Description
English has become the “lingua franca“ in our globalized scientific and economic world. Recognized scientific literature is mostly written in English; for understanding and writing science books or research articles a solid command of the English language is obligatory if a scientist wants to be taken seriously and discussed worldwide.

However, not only scientists need to be sufficient in English language knowledge, but also professionals working on international projects or working abroad, salespeople selling and buying on globalized markets, etc.

The book “Technical English for Geosciences” is primarily meant for students of applied geology and geoengineering, who study at universities and other related colleges or institutes to graduate with a diploma, bachelor’s or master’s degree.
