The modules "Business Communication and Intercultural Competence", "Technical Reading and Writing", as well as "Professional Presentations" should be seen in conjunction with one another. They offer students a framework to further develop their English language skills in a professionally related area from the desired entry level B1 to level B2.
About the "Technical Reading and Writing" module:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with different reading strategies and will be able to apply them to course-specific specialist texts. They will have extended their repertoire of linguistic structures and will be able to apply these structures to the written elaboration of technical questions and documents.
- General and detailed comprehension of course-specific specialist texts
- Techniques for taking notes
- Summarizing texts
- Describing for example, program actions, program functions, instructions, etc.
- Cause-effect relationships
In addition, we will work on:
- Repeating relevant grammatical structures
