Angaben zur Abhaltung
Combining elements of our presentation and writing skills courses, this course covers a variety of communication techniques needed for a successful career in science.
In this course students write and revise texts of various types while learning how to evaluate and interpret written texts of others in regular workshop sessions. Topics considered include: comparison and contrast, data commentary, as well as writing summaries and critiques. In the oral presentation part of the course, this course allows students to practice for formal speaking tasks in English such as a class presentation, dissertation defense or conference talk.
This is a C2 level course and you need to complete the placement test before the first lesson (bring a printout if your result!).
After completion of this module, students have improved their ability to communicate clearly and powerfully in formal written English, become familiar with some common forms of expository writing, increased academic, professional and everyday vocabulary, developed regular habits to continue this learning process, and generally have increased their enjoyment of writing.

In addition, students can understand formal texts with increased ease, summarize information from different written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation; they can express themselves spontaneously very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.
