    Hello,I am an English teacher in some commercial organizations .I am writing to ask if you would be so kind to help me with some information I need:I am going to teach a course of English for agriculture purposes and I am looking for a course book which could be useful for my pupils (workers in the field of agriculture research,greenhouses building,etc.).This course would be very useful if it had texts for reading comprehension,exercises with solutions,listenings.
    Looking forward for your answer,
    Thank you very much.

    If you look at ELT publisher sites you will see that most have ESP course books.
    Just digit ELT publishers in any search engine.

    jairan,

    In the USA, ELT is called ESL (English as a Second Language) and sometimes EFL (English as a Foreign Language). If you google "ESL" or "EFL" and add the word "agriculture," you'll find several specific sites that might help.
