||This publication is based on the English course that strengthened the language skills of the teachers in the School of Industry and Natural Resources at Lapland University of Applied Sciences. The course was funded by the Northern Mining Network project, in which Lapland and Kajaani Universities of Applied Sciences are together developing international cooperation and networking in the mining industry.
The participants of the suggestopedic intensive English course were teachers, senior lecturers, principal lecturers and project workers from R&D at Lapland UAS. The target was to be prepared to give lectures in English and to be able to participate in international projects.
This publication gathers together presentations written during the course. The articles include presentations of the current state of the mining industry, teaching, laboratories at Lapland UAS, projects, etc. The course was a success, and the results, namely being able to speak and learning mining-specific vocabulary, developed decisively.
