Objective(s): The overall aim of this course is not to increase the student's level of English, but to improve the student's skills and abilities of writing academically (in English). This course is not simply an opportunity for students who have registered to have someone (the instructor) simply proofread and correct their texts - the ultimate goal of the course will be that the student is able to write (better) in English at an academic level.

If a student's level of English is not up to the expected level of this course (B2 Upper-Intermediate), it is the student's responsibility to take action to improve it (outside of this course). It is hoped that by working and writing in English on a regular basis throughout this course that participants will, naturally, improve their level of English in one way or another.

Požadavky:

the expected level of this course is B2 Upper-Intermediate
