English for Food Sciences and Biotechnology has been written to help students learn specialised English vocabulary from the fields of food sciences and biotechnology through a range of scientific texts. This course book is aimed at intermediate and upper intermediate learners of English and is suitable either for classwork or selfstudy.

The texts cited in the book have been published by renowned Polish and foreign scientific publishing houses as well as the institutions of the European Union and they correspond with problems included in teaching modules implemented by the Faculty of Food Sciences and Biotechnology at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin. The research and teaching staff of this faculty have been consulted regarding the material found in the book.

The course book is divided into eight units which contain English terminological lexis from the following thematic fields: I. Enzymology, II. Food Analysis, III. Food Biotechnology, IV. Food Safety, V. Food Contamination, VI. Food Technology, VII. Dietetics, VIII. Functional Foods.

Each unit of the book includes a variety of lexical, textural and communicative activities with instructions, which can be done by students in class with a teacher or at home with the answer key. The units contain tasks such as: reading for gist, reading for detail, word formation, multiple choice questions, True/False questions, gapfilling, matching, open questions, word search puzzles and crosswords.

The exercises are aimed at:
a) activating students' background knowledge about a specific topic,
b) perceiving new specialised English lexis on the basis of a text from professional literature,
c) introducing the acquired vocabulary into the terminological system of a given discipline and consolidating it in this system,
d) forming new terms on the basis of the learned words,
e) creating collocations and then using them in textual structures,
f) identifying semantic relations between specialised words,
g) differentiating between general vocabulary and scientific vocabulary.

The exercises can be completed individually, in pairs, in groups or as whole class activities. It is possible to select the units according to one's needs. The units including longer texts can be worked on over several classes or set as homework.

The texts used in the course book have been edited for didactic purposes, as suggested by the reviewer Christopher Garbowski. The changes introduced to the articles include: text segmentation, text shortening and deleting crossreferences. The texts have also been divided into paragraphs in order to make them more readable. The style and grammar used in the texts have not been modified. The references to the original versions of the texts cited in the book can be found in the bibliography.

Acknowledgements We would like to thank the Reviewer for his valuable comments and suggestions. We are also grateful to the research and teaching staff at the Faculty of Food Sciences and Biotechnology: Bozena Sosnowska, Piotr Jarocki and Tomasz Czernecki for their advice and guidance in the preparation of this book. We wish to thank the Head of the Foreign Languages Teaching Centre GraZyna Roguska for her cooperation. We would also like to express our gratitude to the Head of the English and Latin Unit Joanna Raczkiewicz, who tested the book with her students, for her support and encouragement.
