Course Description:

This is an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) course which runs in the second semester of every year beginning in February. We use a professional careers curriculum provided by Oxford University Press consisting of two textbooks: Nursing 1 and Nursing 2. The main goal of these ESP levels is to focus on the functional language needed for success in a specific program of choice. Overall, this ESP course provides students the language, information, and skills needed for their studies and careers in the area of health services. It presents them with English from a variety of nursing-specific topics and situations, and develops their communication skills with patients.
