Welcome to Ocean Topics: Advancing English Skills. The purpose of this book is to introduce you to the wide variety of ways that people interact with the ocean. It will also help you improve your English communication ability.
The ocean is important to us in various ways. We use it for transportation, industry, food sources, recreation, and more. The twelve units in this textbook will introduce you to several topics that are the focus of everyday concern for people who live or work around the ocean - things like the environment, the economy and cultural institutions. The topics for most of the units were inspired by fields of study within different departments at Korea Maritime and Ocean University.
Each unit incorporates practice in the four areas of language skill. The first half of each unit includes a reading accompanied by lists of both general purpose and technical vocabulary. There are both vocabulary and reading comprehension questions, which are in the style used by the TOEIC괐 R. The second half of each unit is based on a dialogue that introduces a grammar point, which the students then practice in a conversation activity. Throughout the book, a series of writing activities introduces the elements of good email writing. Finally, each unit ends with material to promote open - ended discussion and interesting facts.
Acknowledgments We would like to thank Korea Maritime and Ocean University, in particular the Institute for Liberal Arts, for supporting us in the production of this textbook. Thanks also to Bogue Hermsmeyer for his contribution to several of the dialogues. Finally, we wish to thank our students, whose interests and needs have inspired our work.
