English-Polish / Polish-English Glossary of Agri-Environmental Terms

English-Polish / Polish-English Glossary of Agri-Environmental Terms

It is a glossary of quite a narrow area and it doesn’t cover many terms. That’s the only ready-made thing I could find in the net. However, it still might be useful for Polish students who start secondary school with no or very limited English, to acquire some vocabulary needed in Geography or Biology lessons. The glossary contains some environmental terms and definitions as well as names of herbaceous plants, shrubs, trees and birds. There are 2 files: - English-Polish glossary - Polish-English glossary Taken from http://www.wigry.win.pl/glossary/gloss.htm If you need any help with translating some words or phrases to/from Polish, feel free to write to me at lipread.london@yahoo.co.uk
