English for Care – 3rd edition now live!

We’re delighted to release the 3rd edition of our A2-B1 level English course for nursing and care.

This course is perfect for nursing students, nurses with an A2 (elementary) level of English who want to develop their professional English, and for people working in care roles, such as healthcare and nursing assistants.

It has 10 units, each covering a vital area of care, including greeting patients, patient observations, eating and drinking, mobility, pressure area care, falls and injuries, caring for the elderly, talking about pain, infection control and mental health.


What’s in the 3rd edition?

In this upgraded course, students and teachers will find unit by unit quizzes on key language covered – including talking with patients, medical terms and performing important tasks such as giving a handover.

There are interactive recording tasks where students record themselves in conversations with patients. They – and their teachers – can then listen to them, compare them with model dialogues, and download them as MP3 files.

Downloadable glossaries of all the key terms have been added to every unit together with links to web-based content for further study.

Finally, there are self-assessment checklists at the beginning and end of every unit to help students (and their teachers) to reflect on the progress they have made and what still needs additional work.
