The course aims at the following areas: the improvement of language accuracy, fluency and the overall complexity of students’ spoken and written discourse; the systematic enrichment of vocabulary, including collocations, idioms, phasal verbs and abstract concepts. The students are encouraged to perceive the language system as a whole and to acquire the use of less frequent phenomena. Topics for discussion and vocabulary development (including collocations, idioms and word-formation processes): Grammar topics 1. Focus and emphasis, cleft sentences 2. Past modals (possibility, necessity, obligation, speculation) 3. Definining and non-defining clauses; reduced clauses 4. Adverbial claues - manner, reason and contrast clauses 5. Conditionals (counter-factual, unreal, mixed) Vocabulary topics: 1. vocabulary related to the discussed topics (i.e. family, health, science, entertainment, money) including stylistic characteristics, idioms and collocations; 2. word-formation processes 3. synonyms 4.discourse markers
