Sumario: One of the basic conditions required for university students to study a subject, using only books written in a foreign language, is that they have an acceptable level of reading. Nevertheless, we have tried to prove that having such a level is not enough and that students need an extra tool: a glossary of the specific terms used in the study area. This paper begins by giving a brief outline of the research carried out into how foreign language students reach an acceptable level of Reading. Then we present a case study made with students of Physical Oceanography at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), in which we try to prove the advantages of using a glossary of specific terms.
