The course aims to help undergraduate students to improve their proficiency in the English language. It will focus on their developing an academic level in English by helping them prepare for their exams and by managing the course duties. The skills that we will learn are commonly required at European or American universities and it is absolutely necessary to have good English communicating and writing skills to be successful in academia.

Methods

The course will have two main parts.

1.)   In the first part, we will study academic English, learn new vocabulary, and learn how to write and discuss in the English-speaking academic environment.

           Indicative Reading: Hewings, M. (2012) Cambridge Academic English C1, Advanced Student's Book, Student edition,  CUP, Cambridge.

 

2.)   In the second part, we will put these skills into practice. We will read and discuss two original research papers during the term. We will read one academic paper in the first half of the term and one academic paper in the second half of the term.  We will decide about the required reading material during the first week of the term.

 

            Indicative Reading (may comprise the following titles)

                                          i.    De Cruz, H. (2015) Where philosophical intuitions come from, Australasian Journal of Philosophy, 93, pp. 233 - 249.

The final paper will be 100% of the summative assessment. The topic of the final paper has to be related to the academic paper that we will read during the second part of the term. The word limit for the final paper is max. 1 500 words.
