English for Physiotherapy: a coursebook for Spanish students

, ,

Gran parte de la formación del futuro profesional de la Fisioterapia reside en la actualización de conocimientos especializados mediante la lectura de los últimos trabajos publicados sobre la materia. Generalmente, muchos de estos trabajos están publicados en inglés, de ahí la necesidad de tener un dominio de la lengua adaptado tanto en sus contenidos léxicos como en su gramática a esta especialidad. Este cuaderno tiene como objetivo fundamental familiarizar a los futuros profesionales de la Fisioterapia con textos escritos en inglés relacionados con las diferentes especialidades que se incluyen en su ámbito profesional, así como dar unas pautas sencillas para que, a su vez, estos puedan difundir sus opiniones y sus propios trabajos de investigación en lengua inglesa. Cada unidad consta de dos partes: en la primera, se trabaja la comprensión lectora y el vocabulario a través de un artículo relacionado con una especialidad concreta; en la segunda parte, de la forma más sencilla posible, se le ofrecen al estudiante algunas de las herramientas gramaticales y discursivas más convenientes para escribir un texto científico. Finalmente, se incluye un glosario de términos relacionados con las diferentes especialidades de la Fisioterapia y una bibliografía donde se especifican las fuentes utilizadas, así como diversas gramáticas y diccionarios de utilidad para el alumno.

Generally, many of these works are published in English that is why it is necessary to master the language, adapted to the lexical and grammatical content of this field.This book aims to make future professionals of physical therapy get acquainted with texts written in English and related to the different areas included in their professional field, as well as it provides easy guidelines so that students can disseminate their opinions and their own investigations in English. Each unit is divided in two parts: in the first one, students will improve their reading comprehension skills and learn vocabulary through the reading of an article related to a specific field; in the second one, some grammatical and discursive tools are offered, in the easiest way, to students so that they learn how to write a scientific text. Finally, a glossary of terms related to the different fields of physical therapy is included, as well as a bibliography including the references used and some grammar books and useful dictionaries.
