Beschreibungen

<p>Mit fortschreitender Globalisierung von Waren und Dienstleistungen hält an immer mehr Arbeitsplätzen in Chemie-, Pharma- und Biotech-Branche die englische Sprache Einzug. In der Schule hat man zwar gelernt, sich über Alltagsthemen zu unterhalten, aber wenn es darum geht, dem Kundendienst am Telefon die Fehlfunktion des teuersten Geräts im Labor zu beschreiben, kommt doch so mancher ins Schwitzen.</p> <p>Nach einer Einführung, in der die wichtigsten Besonderheiten der englischen Sprache aus Sicht eines deutschen Sprechers rekapituliert werden, behandelt der Autor in 12 Lektionen Schritt für Schritt den Spezialwortschatz und fachspezifische Sprach- und Schreibformen. Die Themen reichen von mathematischen Ausdrücken über chemische Nomenklatur, Biomoleküle, Versuchstiere und Prozesstechnik bis hin zum Umgang mit Regulierungsbehörden und Audits. Gesprächssituationen wie der Anruf beim Kundendienst, die Vorstellung beim neuen Chef oder das Kundengespräch am Messestand werden analysiert und eingeübt.</p> <p>Mit direktem Bezug zur Berufspraxis geht dieser Sprachführer über herkömmliche Englischkurse weit hinaus und bietet wertvolle Hilfe für alle, die im Beruf besser Englisch sprechen wollen. Auch für den fachbezogenen Sprachunterricht an Fachschulen und Hochschulen ist dieses Buch bestens geeignet. Komplett mit Übungen, Tests und Rezepten, wie man die häufigsten Fehler vermeidet.</p>

<b>Steven Hanft</b>, ein gebürtiger New Yorker mit Wohnsitz in Aachen, hält seit vielen Jahren Sprach- und Kommunikationskurse speziell für den naturwissenschaftlichen und medizinischen Sektor, unter anderem in Zusammenarbeit mit der Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker und als Dozent der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. Von 1999 bis 2010 war er als Lehrbeauftragter an der RWTH Aachen tätig. Hanft ist Gründer und Geschäftsführer der Firma CONUSBAT, die regulatorische Dienstleistungen und Trainings für Kunden im Chemie- und Kosmetikbereich anbietet sowie auch für „Borderline“-Sektoren.
<p>Mit fortschreitender Globalisierung von Waren und Dienstleistungen hält an immer mehr Arbeitsplätzen in Chemie-, Pharma- und Biotech-Branche die englische Sprache Einzug. In der Schule hat man zwar gelernt, sich über Alltagsthemen zu unterhalten, aber wenn es darum geht, dem Kundendienst am Telefon die Fehlfunktion des teuersten Geräts im Labor zu beschreiben, kommt doch so mancher ins Schwitzen.</p> <p>Nach einer Einführung, in der die wichtigsten Besonderheiten der englischen Sprache aus Sicht eines deutschen Sprechers rekapituliert werden, behandelt der Autor in 12 Lektionen Schritt für Schritt den Spezialwortschatz und fachspezifische Sprach- und Schreibformen. Die Themen reichen von mathematischen Ausdrücken über chemische Nomenklatur, Biomoleküle, Versuchstiere und Prozesstechnik bis hin zum Umgang mit Regulierungsbehörden und Audits. Gesprächssituationen wie der Anruf beim Kundendienst, die Vorstellung beim neuen Chef oder das Kundengespräch am Messestand werden analysiert und eingeübt.</p> <p>Mit direktem Bezug zur Berufspraxis geht dieser Sprachführer über herkömmliche Englischkurse weit hinaus und bietet wertvolle Hilfe für alle, die im Beruf besser Englisch sprechen wollen. Auch für den fachbezogenen Sprachunterricht an Fachschulen und Hochschulen ist dieses Buch bestens geeignet. Komplett mit Übungen, Tests und Rezepten, wie man die häufigsten Fehler vermeidet.</p>
