Minimum Competence in Scientific English and the other books in the series1, are attempts to provide answers to that question. In writing the book our essential preoccupation has been to take into account what students do know, what they don't know and what, if they are to function in the real world, they must know. We have targeted the essential and all that is of secondary importance has been left to one side. In this way, we believe that learning can become faster, more effective and far more satisfying. The present volume is a completely revised edition of the successful Minimum Competence in Scientific English, first published in 1991. The texts have been renewed and many new features, including communicative, web and group activities have been added. The book has been written for students working in the fields of science, technology and engineering who have a basic knowledge of general English and wish to make that fundamental change - to move from the status of learner to the status of user. Minimum Competence in Scientific English has been designed specifically for learners whose ambition it is to master English as a worktool within the next 12 months.
