This module is aimed at the advanced learner of the language. It will further develop and extend listening, reading and writing skills acquired at previous levels. Students will acquire a high level of competence in written and oral language including debating skills on less common topics. In addition, a particular emphasis will be put on specific skills like summarising and report writing. One weekly hour will be dedicated to improving students’ reading and writing skills, particularly in academic contexts. Teaching is through practical language classes involving both whole group and small-group/pair-work activities, aimed at developing all language skills, with emphasis on oral communication. Visual aids, audio/video recordings and the Internet are used routinely.
