About

The course is based on research in ESP (English for Specific Purposes) and prepares the students for further studies in English as well as for studies in other subjects where teaching and/or examination is in English. The written parts focus on professional English, critical reading and writing, argumentation, linguistic correctness and other stylistic aspects. The spoken parts focus on developing the students' abilities to communicate clearly and correctly in an academic context. The course takes a hands-on approach.
