Inglés para Informática-en


The technical English course in different computing courses is designed for those who study specialized English in the world of computers and their applications to improve specific English skills they need.

In the course we use authentic material such as extracts from technical manuals, newspaper articles, instructions from computing devices, etc., materials that our students will have access to throughout their caree.

In technical English we cover the four language skills, by performing a wide range of activities from activities designed to focus on the practice of the learned vocabulary words: from exercises in English translation of technical texts, auditions, to debates and discussions in class where students have to make their own decisions or express their opinion on the proposed topics.


Work in the English module consists in the understanding and translation of technical texts related to machines and computer components, since their proper interpretation is essential to the tasks to be performed by professionals in the sector. The working language in computing is English, after all, and this can prove to be a great difference to our students.
The ultimate goal is to understand how natural, even essential, the use of English for network technicians.
