I have finally worked out the complicated world of making epub files and have published my first ebooks. Having bought a Kindle for myself last year, I can certainly see the value of being able to download books and take them with me in a small device. I am hoping that my ebooks will be as useful to my readers. I have started with ebooks for the Occupational English Test as this seems to be the priority for many of my youtube subscribers.
Recently, I have been talking with nurses who have come to the UK from Spain to work in hospitals around the UK. Coming from the EU, they were not required to pass an English test like IELTS or OET before working here. All were promised language support on arrival in the UK but this does not seem to have eventuated. It is very hard to manage the specialist English you need when you start in an English-speaking hospital e.g. tasks like giving a handover, telephoning admission information, doing an admission, completing the multitude of assessment tools and many more. I plan to develop some support materials in this area soon and will make an ebook of the Spelling and Vocabulary book as soon as possible. Watch this space!
