foreign nurses (but also medical technicians, persons working in medical practices, wellness centres, geriatric/ retirement homes, administrative staff) and
indigenous nursing staff, who increasingly have to attend to foreign patients
The teaching books are based on a prag-matic – communicative approach: There is a strong focus on improving oral communication. Much emphasis has, therefore, been placed on the skills of listening and speaking.
The four main modules, which in turn include many subthemes, are:
Daily Hospital Routine, Case History,
Examination and Treatment.
These themes are covered in separate modules and can be individually implemented for specific target groups (e.g. for health staff working in Admissions, out- Patients, General Practice, etc.). It is therefore not necessary to cover the whole book.
Listening comprehension exercises featuring dialogues from the daily hos-pital routine
A range of practical exercises and ac-tivities with the objective to develop ac-tive speaking and listening skills.
Technical language and expres-sions related to hospital environments are conveyed by means of case studies and consolidated through a variety of activities.
Grammatical explanations are treated schematically and in context in order to provide the learners with an understandable set of basic rules. The material does not, however, claim to include a comprehensive and complete grammar section.
