Why study English for environmental and natural resource management?

 

English is the international language of the twenty-first century.

The majority of scientific papers are published in English and scientific conferences are most often conducted in English.

Furthermore, an increasing number of universities around the world offer courses in environmental and natural resource management subjects to international students through the medium of English.

As many of these issues have international and often global implications, it is vital that those studying and working in environmental and natural resource disciplines are able to access and communicate information relevant to their subject area easily and efficiently.

Companies and international organisations involved in environmental and natural resource management use English for business and co-operation. Graduates who work for these organisations are required to have second language knowledge, usually in English.

As well as having general English knowledge and skills, understanding, fluency and accuracy in using technical terms is a major advantage to students, academics and professionals working in these sectors.

The ability to exchange knowledge and data is essential in order to find solutions for some of the problems we are facing and to develop strategies for future sustainability.

Earth English aims to facilitate specialist English language learning for environmental and natural resource management students, academics and professionals.

 

Who is Earth English?

 

My name’s Trelawny and I started Earth English in 2010 after I had finished a degree in agroforestry in the United Kingdom. 

I have been a qualified teacher of English to speakers of other languages since 1992 and I have taught in schools, companies and as a freelance teacher in Europe, Asia and Africa. I have also taught six pre-sessional courses in academic language and skills at Aberystwyth University, Reading University and, recently, Cardiff University in the United Kingdom.

As well as teaching and travelling, I am interested in environmental issues and I have participated in various projects relating to this topic. Between 1997 and 2002, I designed and developed a small environmental agriculture project in rural Malaŵi.

In the last ten years, I have had the opportunity to create a range of specialist materials for individual lessons and I have written and taught a specialist English course for environmental and natural resource management.

The specialist English materials and services I am offering through Earth English are thoroughly researched and carefully planned to ensure that they are relevant and up-to-date. I hope to engage the learner and provide an opportunity for convenient, flexible and economical specialist English language learning.

I am confident that environmental and natural resource managers and students will benefit from the services I am offering and I always welcome any feedback. Send your questions, comments or suggestions - click here.
