Making the complex simple! You’ve come to the right place:) So, for all those interested: since one of my recent books, namely, “The Language of Science,” is out of print and hard to come by, I’ve decided to give you some access to it. My friends, here are my lectures’ handouts (Modules 1-4) and some stuff from my textbook. All newly revised and updated: see, for example, materials on analysing visuals/infographics, writing argumentative essays and research papers etc. The actual lectures and the textbook cover much, much more! Hope this helps:) Enjoy!

The term “icebreaker” comes from special ships called “icebreakers” (укр. криголами) that break up ice in the arctic regions. And just as these ships make it easier for other ships to navigate, conversational ice breakers are little tricks (you might call them “openers” or “interest devices”) that help you do just that: break the ice, relax, have fun, and start communicating!
