This textbook is a result of longstanding work of teachers and lecturers from the Department of Foreign Languages and Russian as a Foreign Language at Samara National Research University (Russia) and reflects its vast and rich experience in teaching English for Specific Purposes.

A distinguishing characteristic of this book is its holistic approach – it encapsulates various facets and aspects of the aerospace industry. This approach allows the students to look beyond the bounds of their field and see the wide picture of the industry and the place of their specialization in this picture.

With that in mind, the book consists of two main parts: Aircraft Engineering and Information Technologies in Aviation and Cosmonautics. This division does not only reflect the established distinction between the “hardware” and “software” of aeronautical equipment but also between the traditional and state-of-the art practices of its development. The latter includes such breakthrough technologies as Avionics, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Computer Optics, Geoinformatics, Satellite Navigation Systems, Nanotechnology, etc.

To develop the students’ language, communicative and professional competences, each of 29 units has an orchestrated structure: Lead-in (to evoke interest to the topic and activate background knowledge by means of discussing hot issues); Reading (to obtain new knowledge from authentic materials); Comprehension (to consolidate the knowledge of the new material); Language Focus (to practice lexical and grammar skills); Listening (to facilitate students’ work with authentic audio and video resources from the Internet); Speaking (to develop productive oral skills through discussions, debates and presentations); Writing (to develop productive written communication skills through essays, reports, technical descriptions, etc.). Along with advancing all kinds of speech activities, various tasks and exercises are focused on developing critical thinking and creative approach to problem solving. Numerous pictures, photos, charts and diagrams make it easier to absorb and retain the new information.

The book can be used in class (150-200 hours) as well as for self-study or for Blended learning – it contains the keys to exercises, an English-Russian glossary not to mention a list of further reading and online resources.
