Competency aims

The aim of the course is to provide a foundation in those aspects of English usage that can facilitate the conduct of professional duties. - to improve spoken fluency in routine field- related interaction. - to develop the student's ability to interpret and comprehend authentic English text. - to develop fluency in both spoken and written language for various purposes, with focus on the field of study.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student is expected to be better able to communicate with others on matters of common interest and to understand how common English sentence patterns are used to convey information in different professional contexts. In the written language the student is expected to - better understand more difficult professional literature through an enhanced command of special terminology and by using reading skills such as determining meaning from context, recognising links within a text, retrieving information, and making inferences - be better able to produce clear prose for professional purposes ranging from describing the configuation of a piece of equipment or the stages of a technical process to writing a letter of application and related CV. In the spoken language the student is expected to be better able to - use English in social situations and to transfer information in one-to-one situations as well as to organise and deliver a presentation to a wider audience - listen to an English discourse in order to more effectively identify the general ideas expressed or to extract specific information.
