English for the oil and gas industry
The Oxford ‘English for Careers in oil and gas’ course is very authentic covering practical language for both downstream and upstream activities, from safety issues to project management geophysical tests to risk management and environmental hazard containment.
The course is especially suitable for anyone with an elementary background in English or with a better knowledge of the language but a need for familiarization of the terminology of the industry.Register Now
Two books are covered with the course each requiring 30 to 40 contact hours with some extra time allowed for testing and revision. A fair total estimate would be 70 teaching hours to cover both books.
The course is divided into two parts each consisting of 15 work units and involves:
- Frequent role play
- Information-gap language activities
- Practice of the four skills: reading writing listening and speaking
- Grammar and group work
- Regular unit by unit testing
- Project work activities using the internet
We promise a fun practical approach to the topics to give students an overview of the industry together with general language practice and some specialist knowledge.
