Acknowledgment

Alhamdulillah praise the almighty god for allowing us to finish this module book,

without the power to literate which has been given by the almighty god, this book can

never be finished. Besides that, we would also like to show our deepest gratitude for

all of the doctors who have contribute; sparing their time and helped us for making this

work possible. This book is meant for veterinary medical student to learn English in

the field. This book represents strong point of what needed for veterinary doctorate to

be achieved in simplified way. After going through a lot and time consuming of

process, we believe that this book could help them go through the insight of what is

English meant for a veterinarian which have been mentioned earlier that this book was

done by the help of professionals. Such honor and experience we will never forget

working side-by-side with professionals, because only a few selected people have had

the chance to work in such environment. Each chapter was supervised by the

professionals and was made carefully so that the end result could reach satisfaction of

all parties. Throughout the process of making this entire book, we learned something

that it is no easy to make a book despite our ignorance of many books. We may not

understand fully what it means to make a book, however now we know that we have

to respect the books and do what the books wanting us to do, to be read.

Main Objective
The students are expected to develop better reading.

Concussion

What is a concussion? A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused


by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to
move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around
or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and
damaging brain cells. Medical providers may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury
because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, the effects of a concussion can
be serious.

2. If a concussion caused by a sudden movement, why don’t we experience it when we
were running or accelerating in vehicles?

4. A concussion can also mean traumatic brain injury, does it mean that brain doesn’t
have healing factors? Either way, please explain it briefly.
5. If a sudden change could result the brain in traumatic state, what would happen to
human as a whole if we experience sudden change in one go?

Journals History

Journal #1
September 19th 2019, Class -English for Specific Purposes. We have come back from our
long end-term break, and now we have to start breaking our bones again. To be honest, we
were quite astonished when we were told to look for a doctor and make a questionnaire for
them. First, my group personally have no issue with making a questionnaire, the real
challenge is to find a doctor who willingly cooperate with us. Initially, Ibnu have got himself
a call from a friend, telling us that “I have a friend, and this friend of mine know some
Veterinarian” so Bintang and I nodded. However, four days later, Ibnu suddenly gone dark,
he didn’t reply to our messages. We’ve tried to contact him but to no avail, so we went to
plan B. I know some doctors from a game that work in RSUD hospital so I called him in. His
name is Dr. Anggoro, specialized in bone surgery, an Orthopedic. I told Bintang that we
should get a less busy doctor, but he insisted and specialized doctor is a must. And so, our
choice for doctor has been secured. From that point onward, we discussed the
questionnaire and start trading mind. On the other hand, Ibnu still hasn’t answering to our
call. We plan to drop him IF he keeps on acting like this for the third time.

Journal #2
The next week, we met in class, sadly Bintang wasn’t able to come prior to his health
condition. Ibnu and I agreed to have Veterinarian as our source so we start planning out the
questionnaires. To be honest both Bintang and I have a doubt so we perfected our plan B. I
start to contacted the doctor and ask if he would participate for our questionnaire.
Thankfully, the doctor willingly helps us to participate along with his specialist friends. I then
transferred the questionnaire into Google Form so we don’t really need to meet with the
doctors personally. Unfortunate upon us, 4 days later still has no response from the
questionnaire, so I decided to contact the doctors again. Considering the job, it took 3 hours
to get the replies and to my surprise, I got reasoned with. He said to not rush their time, I
just followed along and long behold, I got one response from the questionnaire. At the end,
this is our only response. I tried to convince Ibnu to contact his Vets but sadly there was a
problem with something outside my consent. It really infuriates me and stressed me out
thinking how bad it went, I all ask is a non-test response that can be filled easily by spending
4 minutes or so.

Journal #4
We have been told that we would make a module to help ESP students understands
English better, and that module will be our last assignment in this ESP class. The subject of
our ESP module is veterinary students and to be honest, it wasn’t a pleasant trip to create
something that we are not even decent in.

We have lost track of how many times the module was revised. Some activities were
dumped into bin, and some were preserved for further discussion. We need to consider
students’ needs in this module. According to the feedback, the vet appears to keen on
reading books, especially English worded. This however, focuses only part of the language
such as terms used in the book. And so, they use medical terms as a focus to dissect what
the text is trying to tell them. Thus, we decided to go with module focusing on reading skill
in hope it can improve further their reading skill. We also include vocabulary and writing
skill to enhance their reading experience so they can relate the material we give.
