English for Academics
ENGLISH FOR ACADEMICS
Listening - Speaking -Reading - Writing
Did you know that most communication in English around the world takes place between non-native speakers using English as a lingua franca? This is very often the case when academics communicate with each other within their specialisms.
If you are planning to improve your English in order to take part in international communication in your academic field, this course is intended for you. It deals with topics and situations that you will find relevant and helpful, such as:
- presentation skills
- academic correspondence
- conference announcements and calls for papers
- grant proposals
- reading and writing abstracts
- understanding lectures and discussions
- social situations, e.g. interaction with colleagues from othercountries, or making travel and accommodation arrangements.
To get started, you will need to have a lower-intermediate level of English (equivalent to B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference). The course focuses on communication through the four skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, and in class time you will be involved in challenging tasks and interesting activities together with your fellow learners. But please remember that you will also need to make time to work outside class hours in order to make significant progress in English.
Be ready to experiment with your English. It doesn’t matter if you make some mistakes ; nobody is perfect!
