1 Review
This book has grown out of lesson units that have been used by the author successfully in his English classes for engineering students for over a decade. It is a continuous instructional and practice workbook that teaches communication skills that are essential in the areas of professional and technical activities. The book has taken into account the problems and requirements of technical students and is an attempt to offer sensible pedagogical solutions based on the recent developments in applied linguistics.
