The premise for this book begins with an \u2018English for Nursing\u2019 course offered at Ajou University in Suwon, S. Korea. This book was developed from a need for medial English books designed for English as a foreign Language (EFL) students. Most EFL books are for basic conversation or for tests like TOEIC and TOEFL. So, the need was there for an EFL book for nursing students.
The format of the book is three fold. The beginning of each chapter has a section involving basic EFL functions which such as \u201cintroducing yourself\u201d, \u201cgiving directions\u201d or \u201cfollowing instructions\u201d. There is a sample dialogue, a display of the language involved including discourse, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, and an interactive activity. Each activity is followed by a lesson plan for the teacher\u2019s use. Some activities involve cards in which case there is only two activities related directly to nursing and medicine. Again, these activities are followed by a lesson plan of the teacher\u2019s use. Each chapter ends with a question following the format of the Test of Spoken English (TSE) which is the English part of the testing process to become a registered medical professional in Canada. The new TOEIC test also has a spoken section similar to the TSE.
The characters in the book are four: Cheol Soo and Sun Ni, and Dick and Jane. Dick and Jane are the stereotypic characters found in all elementary school readers in North America. Cheol Soo and Su Ni are the stereotypic characters found in all elementary school readers in Korea. So the characters should be familiar to students and teachers alike.
