In this course, we will be covering a variety of topics in English mainly for academic use as well as for use in our new Biotech company.  We will be working together to solve a modern day problem through design, research and development.  Our goal will be to provide each other and the public with solutions to common problems in science and to express these solutions in English as well as talk with our colleagues and "co-workers" in a familiar setting.   This course will involve reading and writing but the lectures will be adapted to use the speaking method of learning English.
