The author describes the basic design of a 3-day workshop on scientific writing for non-native English speakers. It is designed to give participants a basic understanding of writing scientific articles for international journals, and does not include English-language teaching. Scientific communication could be taught as a subject in its own, with English-language teaching as a completely separate course.
