English Courses for the Agricultural Industry

Course Overview:

As the word goes global, the agriculture business has evolved across frontiers and oceans. Food, raw and processed, is regularly transported across continents. As space is no longer a limit for food trade and human nutrition, language cannot represent a barrier to this continuous exchange. In the last 60 years, English has been taking a foothold as the primary language for world trade and the exchange of agricultural goods is no exception.

This course is suitable for pre-career students and professionals alike who want to improve their communication for work purposes. It helps students achieve their professional and personal objectives by immersing students in the four key language components while incorporating career-specific vocabulary and contexts relative to Agribusiness and Agriculture. Practical work experience, or an internship component, can be included in the course as an add-on, if requested.

Main Course Aims:

  • To provide students with a solid foundation on essential English communication skills
  • To provide participants with both the necessary language and study skills to ensure success in their current or future Agribusiness or Agriculture role.

Course Content:

This course embraces a dynamic variety of inter-related disciplines (such as botany, environmental physiology, plant propagation, cultural management, soil science, meteorology, field crops, animal husbandry), Because of this, participants are given the opportunity to learn a vast array of technical terms, industry-specific vocabulary, and expressions, which are invaluable tools for Agriculture professionals wishing to interact and conduct business in an international context.

If requested, students can gain practical work experience at the Malta Aquaculture Research Centre (NAC), the Malta Aquaculture Research Centre (MAR), or any other recommended organisation of their choosing. As seats for these placements are limited, however, booking well in advance is required.
