Students must demonstrate a good command of English for technical purposes at the B2 level of the Common European Framework. In this course students will extend their existing skills by broadening their vocabulary and their knowledge of phrases and expressions, and by learning advanced sentence structures that will enable them to understand, discuss and present technical subjects in English. They will also acquire the fundamental techniques that will allow them to comprehend, summarize and present complex scientific materials in their subsequent project work. As this is a preparatory and not an accompanying course it is not possible at this early stage to link directly to the student projects that will later form part of the M.Sc. programme.
I. Basics (mathematical formulae, tools, materials, etc.)
II. Introductory technical texts
III. Intermediate technical texts, audio and video materials from the specialist
IV. Presentations on technical subjects
V. Grammar revision (as necessary)
A selection of language teaching and learning materials appropriate to the target group (print, visual aids, audio, video and software)
|Recommended or required reading:
A list of recommended reading materials will be distributed. Students are strongly encouraged to read English journals and technical literature and to visit appropriate English-language websites.
