Prezentarea cursului/Rezumatul cursului:
The book/ course consists of 10 units dealing with the basic aspects of daily life
(introducing yourself, going shopping, eating, travelling, hobbies, communication,
the human body, etc). Each unit consists of more sections covering the four basic
skills a student should possess in a foreign language: reading, writing, listening,
speaking. Except for the grammar sections, each unit can be studied
independently according to the student`s needs.
Section F of each unit (“Language in use”) are also of high importance as they
prepare the learner for direct interaction with foreigners.
The final unit introduces the students to a special topic - the European Union,
which will definitely influence their future career one way or another.
Therefore, broadly speaking, the overall objective of the textbook/ course is to
turn intermediate students into high intermediate and advanced ones so
that they could deal with English for Special Purposes in the next semester/year(s) of
At the end of this course, the learner will be able to talk fluently on every day life
topics, to understand a written text in English of average difficulty, to use
correctly the most important English grammar structures as well as to produce
different functional written texts (a Curriculum Vitae, an application letter, a formal
and informal letter, etc), to use language in specific situations (making,
accepting, refusing an invitation, giving, asking for information and directions,
narrating, starting a conversation, introducing people and even making small
