The authors have created seven Units, each Unit contains parts devoted to different academic skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening and use of English.


The Units include high-interest contemporary topics in scientific ethics that will be of interest for young scientists. The comprehensive skills practice will enable EFL students to express themselves coherently in discussing scientific problems and making presentations, writing abstracts and articles. The students are provided with authentic materials from scientific journals and university lectures, they will be able to develop their skills in academic reading, listening and note taking.


The tasks of every part of the Unit focus on academic and practical vocabulary building, at the end of every Unit the students will systematically record new academic vocabulary, which is necessary for their further development as a scientist in a particular field.


Opinion questions in every Unit stimulate inferencing, critical thinking and discussing. This kind of tasks will surely develop students’ speaking skill.


Specific reading skills such as skimming, scanning, drawing conclusions, paraphrasing, summarizing, using context clues, understanding sequences in a variety of reading environments are reflected in unit tasks.


Integration of information and ideas will help students learn to organize and classify data and write their own annotated bibliography, abstract and article, thus, prepare them to share their research results with the scientific community. The information collected about the requirements to publications of different journals will broaden their awareness of the main rules every scientist should follow to be successful and famous.


Academic listening tasks involve not only language skills alone. The students will practise in listening to lectures and taking notes, predicting information and organizing it.


The authors think that developing creativeness in young scientists is worth spending time. There are tasks, which require that all students shall solve the problems involving their creative thinking, research abilities, and tackle a problem again using a new pitch.
