Preface
Welcome to the third edition of ENGLISH FOR NURSING, ELEMENTARY LEVEL. This new edition is the product of constant revision and evaluation, not only by me, but also by the many instructors who, along with their students, have used the previous edition and have sent in valuable suggestions and comments. The success of the previous edition has been due, in large measure, to the honest and careful appraisal given by instructors and their students.
ENGLISH FOR NURSING, ELEMENTARY LEVEL, is the first in a series of English language texts designed for nursing students at an elementary level of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). The text integrates the basic skills of reading, speaking, and writing in order to prepare nursing students to understand and be able to discuss nursing subjects at the intermediate level. The project evolved from a study of the needs of nursing students in the Arab world. Although the book focuses on nursing, most of the skills taught are appropriate for any academic course of study.
Unit Organisation
The book emphasizes and integrates the basic skills of reading, speaking, and writing. The primary focus is placed on reading skills and vocabulary development in the context of academic nursing use. Grammar instruction, arising from the reading passages, is restricted so as to aid consolidation of the above skills. The introduction of grammatical items is graded and sequenced, where appropriate, in accordance with the principles of intermediate language acquisition.
The reading passages have been carefully selected to reflect an appropriate level of language and to cover a wide range of nursing topics from nursing curriculums and nursing journals. They are arranged in ten units, each unit consists of a brief pre-reading exercise and an exercise on skimming or scanning.
Following the reading passage itself, there are post-reading exercises that focus on important reading skills: getting the main idea; guessing meaning from context; understanding reading structure; finding topic sentences; recognizing contextual reference, understanding signal words, making notes, outlining, comparing and contrasting, cause and effect, classification, exemplification, making inferences, rephrasing understanding stems and affixes, and discussing questions that relate the reading passage to the student’s own life. The many and varied speaking and writing activities presented here are closely related to the reading passages, and they give students adequate practice in the production of language in the field of nursing.
