Understanding basic technical language FAVA - Formación en Ambientes Virtuales de Aprendizaje 3 SENA - Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje. TÍTULO DEL OBJETO DE APRENDIZAJE Nowadays, being able to communicate in a foreign language has become a must-do and a plus for those people hoping to improve their professional development and increase their academic opportunities. It is no secret that when it comes to foreign language communication, English is at the top of the list as the most spoken language at international educational and professional communities. Even though English has come to be so globalized, if a person really wants to have a good performance at a specific academic or professional environment, and be more competitive, knowing the basics of English might not be enough, that person needs to master a more particular knowledge of the language depending on his/her occupational profile. Understanding basic technical language from an occupational area will be of great help to grasp the meaning of more complex content. For this reason, we have prepared this learning material to help you get familiar with some basic technical language you may need to understand specialized concepts in English that are commonplace in the information systems area. Let’s start with a look into some useful language and technical vocabulary you need to make your first step as an information systems analyst and developer in a second language. INTRODUCTION

As information systems analysts, getting an internship in a well-known IT company, let’s say IBM, would be a great way to start. Let’s check some useful language and vocabulary that can be used to communicate when looking for an internship or a job.
