Using scientific topics that appeal to college students, this text will firm up the fundamentals of the four language skills.

This integrated skills text is divided into five sections — health, environment, organisms, technology and the universe — with four essays in each, designed to firm up the fundamentals of the four language skills. Each unit contains a vocabulary check, true/false question, grammar questions, guided composition, listening and dictation exercises. The level rises gradually unit by unit. To aid understanding, each essay is followed by a notes section, and there are two columns with English expressions and scientific information.
