Study Guide on Mechanical Engineering Terminology is a course intended for upper-intermediate and advanced level learners of English (B2-C2) studying mechanical engineering, or for people already working in the field (i.e. the aircraft industry, the automotive industry, the marine industry). It is suitable for use in university and technical school settings, or in-company training programs. It can also be used for self-study.
Study Guide on Mechanical Engineering Terminology is content-based and covers a wide range of mechanical engineering topics, using adapted texts from various sources such as websites, magazines, dictionaries, encyclopedias. It contains tasks to review and practice the vocabulary and language functions in the Student's book (English for Mechanical Engineering) through new reading texts and further reading, speaking and writing tasks. It can be used in combination with the Students book as a complementary practice and revision tool, or independently as a crash course in technical terminology. It contains twelve units. Each one is designed to provide approximately two to three hours' work.
