Course Overview:
This course focuses on English for Specific Purposes (ESP) in the context of biology. ESP caters to the unique language needs of learners in specific academic or professional fields. For biology students, it's crucial to master not only scientific concepts but also the ability to express them effectively in English.

Throughout the course, we will cover various aspects of ESP, from basic technical terminology to advanced language skills such as writing scientific content, reading research articles, and participating in academic discussions in English. Precision in communication is vital, given the technical nature of biology.

The course is designed to equip you with effective reading strategies and comprehension skills tailored to biology-related materials. By the end of the course, you'll be well-prepared to use English effectively in your academic and professional settings, enabling clear communication and success in the dynamic field of biology.
