Some of the most influential papers of recent years, summarized
in a series of articles in the impact assignments in scientific English,
will be discussed.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the Anglo-American terminology used both in the discipline of science and in much of the literature required by faculty reading lists.
Discussion of key articles and extracts treating scientific problems. Intensive reading and analysis of texts.
At the end of the reading, group students will be asked a report on one of the themes based on further reading. Conversation.
