The AP2 course is based on AP1, thus extending the student´s skills for working with subtechnical texts, and even with professional texts of chosen branches of science. According to the students´ needs it concentrates on chosen grammar topics, but mainly intends to develop understanding of syntactic structures and typical rhetorical functions (e.g., various types of descriptions, and, if possible, a case study). Increasing emphasis is placed on the undergraduate´s independent work with and reading of linguistically more demanding materials. The course extends the student´s subtechnical vocabulary, and includes fundamental notions of chosen branches of science. It is focused on formal writing including the sentence and paragraph structure, linking, cohesion and coherence in texts.
