Oricat ar parea de neobisnuit, ideea unui astfel de manual apartine studentilor mei. S-a nascut in timpul seminariilor, din discutiile purtate cu ei pe marginea multor subiecte de interes pentru toti: cum putem asimila activ o limba straina, de ce gramatica si de ce nu, cum pastram ce am achizitionat de-a lungul timpului, cum perfectionam ceea ce am acumulat si cum adaugam ceva nou unui bagaj de cunostinte divers, sedimentat in decursul anilor anteriori de studiu al limbii engleze.

Trebuie sa marturisesc aici ca entuziasmul lor a fost de-a dreptul contagios: rezultatul vi se infatiseaza, mai mult sau mai putin, acum, in prezentul demers. An de an, am incercat sa inteleg ce trezeste, de fapt, curiozitatea studentilor mei si am incercat sa adaptez materialele de studiu si temele de discutii sferei lor de interes.

Necesitatea unui astfel de suport de curs pentru seminariile de limba engleza destinate studentiilor facultatilor de comunicare, stiinte politice, administratie publica, relatii internationale, jurnalism etc. - pentru care materialele de studiu sunt extrem de limitate, reduse de cele mai multe ori la instrumente de lucru de genul dictionarelor – este, fara indoiala, de netagaduit.

Lucrarea de fata se orienteaza cu prioritate catre aceste domenii de studiu, prin textele actuale, alese cu precadere din sfera politicului si a libertatii presei, precum si prin tematica abordata in dezvoltarea vocabularului specific acestor zone de interes.
