Intensive English Course for Radiographers
This course has been designed to provide radiographers with deeper understanding and knowledge of English and to help build technical vocabulary related to their field. Our principal goal is to assist radiographers to communicate effectively and accurately through English in their working lives.
- use English with confidence in the workplace;
- hold informal conversations with international colleagues;
- develop the ability to interpret a written document or give an oral presentation;
- give presentations and attend conferences;
- use technical vocabulary specific to your field.
1. Technical language for Radiographers
Dedicated sessions will be provided which will cover the key terminology used in general radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and interventional radiology (IR). There will also be radiographic image viewing sessions focusing on image critique, radiographic anatomy and pathology. A published peer-reviewed journal article will be reviewed in order to familiarise participants with the language used. A glossary of key terminology used will be provided for all participants along with associated activities. Finally a short translating test on key terminology will take place towards the end of the programme.
2. Communication with patients in english
Practical role-play scenarios will be conducted where participants will interact and discuss standard questions that would be directed at patients, terminology related to the associated imaging techniques and how best to explain this to patients, and terminology related to patient monitoring equipment.
3. Preparing for conference presentation
This will start with the first stage of presenting at a scientific conference i.e. submission of an abstract. A scientific abstract will be reviewed and discussed in small groups and a presentation will then be delivered on this topic followed by questions and answers. Presentation skills will be covered throughout the course through sessions exploring presentation structure, useful phrases, and linking sections. Sample videos of good and bad scientific presentations will be reviewed in class. Participants will be required to give an informal presentation initially which will then be followed by a short, formal scientific presentation at the end of the course.
