    Thank you for your extremely informative posts on technical English for Engineers. I am an ESL teacher, who on ocassion, teaches an occupation specific language course to foreign-trained professionals. I especially liked the games.

    I taught English for 42 years, thought I had retired, now I’ve been asked to teach English for Computer Science at a new Polytechnic (Fachhochschule). As there seem to be no materials yet,
    I found this site to be a great place to get ideas for active lessons(the students have to stay awake for 3 hours, and so do I!) Thanks a lot.
