Effective Communication in English

This course aims to enhance the student’s ability to employ English for academic and professional purposes. In the course we will work with a range of genres of written and oral communication (such as business correspondence, reports, academic papers, oral presentations). The student’s linguistic proficiency will be improved through individual and collaborative tasks, designed to develop both written and oral language skills.
