when 17 July 2017 - 4 August 2017
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 6 ECTS
fee EUR 675

During this three-week intensive course, you will be prepared for academic use of English (listening, reading, and most notably writing and speaking). Attention will be paid to grammatical accuracy and complexity. The writing part also deals with the construction of paragraphs, different text structures, proper referencing of sources, and argumentation. You have to write an individual paper (or research report) on a topic of your choice.

You will improve your speaking skills by means of discussions, debates and other assignments. You will also practice how to give an oral presentation including presentation techniques, rhetorical devices, pronunciation, and language practice.

Between the two lectures, time is reserved for independent study during which you are required to work on assignments and language areas in which you feel you need more practice. This is an intensive course for which you should reserve at least 40 hours per week.
