"When Garnet Education's 'English for Specific Academic Purposes' series won the English Speaking Union's English Language book award in 2009, it was an indication that the provision of quality resources for EAP had entered a new era. Having seen how Garnet Education have raised the bar in terms of ESP course books, I approached the Psychology volume with high hopes. Once again, they have delivered the goods. A very worthwhile addition to Garnet's award-winning series of skills-based courses designed specifically for non-native students who are about to enter English-medium tertiary-level studies, perfectly pitched for its target audience. All in all, any teacher should feel comfortable taking English for Psychology into an ESAP class, regardless of their level of experience in teaching specific academic courses."
