English for Environmentalists - Communication and Language Skills

07.07.2019 - 12.07.2019

Alfred Toepfer Academy for Nature Conservation (NNA) in cooperation with the International Academy for Nature Conservation (INA). The course is recommended by EUROPARC Federation and EUROPARC Deutschland.
Kathrin Bockmühl (BfN) and Mark Sixsmith (Environmental English)
This course is designed for people working in conservation, environmental education, landscape management or nature-based tourism who want to improve their existing English language skills. The course will be conducted in English. A sound basic knowledge of English is therefore required. The maximum number of participants will be 18.

English is the common language of understanding for nature conservation and related issues in many parts of the world. Conservationists need to be able to communicate in English when they talk to colleagues from other countries, contact the European Commission or other international institutions, take expert groups from abroad on a guided walk or consult English literature. Yet, the corresponding vocabulary is neither taught in schools nor universities.
This course will provide people with an opportunity to develop their vocabulary in relation to key points of interest in the fields of nature conservation, landscape management, environmental education, interpretation, tourism, through both language training in the field and indoor language workshops. Participants will use various techniques to develop their language skills in a different subject areas each day. The general format of each day will include vocabulary and grammar workshops, activities, group discussion and feedback.
The tutor is a native speaker.
Ca. 671 € incl. accommodation (double room), full board and all language training, field visits, excursion and course material or ca. 746 € (single room). Details will be given after registration. Registration deadline is 30 April 2019. A cancellation fee will be charged if participation is cancelled after 11 June 2019 and no replacement is available.
