  • read and understand academic/professional English texts
  • write academic/professional English texts clearly and accurately
  • take responsibility for their own learning and become more autonomous language learners, in order to promote life-long learning.

Depending on the particular needs of the group, the course will include

  • field-specific materials from a range of sources such as journals, (text) books, and the Internet, provided by students and the teacher
  • reading the material, applying appropriate strategies
  • writing texts relevant to the students' academic and professional needs
  • presenting and discussing topics related to the fields of study
  • becoming familiar with strategies and tools for future language development.
