        Course content

        This course is designed for Environmental Science and Engineering students who want to improve their English language skills while investigating and debating the impacts of human development (industrial, commercial, and residential) on air, land, and water resources. The focus is not only going to be on the causes of current environmental challenges but also on ideas for potential solutions to existing local and global problems. Authentic English texts and media will be used in group discussions and to craft written responses. Individual presentations will allow students to report on an issue of personal interest.

        This semester we are going to take a closer look at the urban environment and are going to envision the city of the future. By 2050, 70 to 80 percent of the world's population, which by then is going to be almost 10 billion, will be living in cities. To get our cities ready for the future, we need to not only solve today's environmental problems, such as air pollution and climate change, but we need to try to also anticipate what other new challenges the future may bring. We will explore various topics through classroom debates, small group work, listening and reading exercises, as well as presentations, and we will work together towards our common goal of developing a more sustainable and livable city of the future.

        Learning outcomes

        Participants will develop their vocabulary knowledge and communication abilities in all forms (reading, writing, speaking and listening) in the subject field of this course.

        Course content

        This course is designed for Environmental Science and Engineering students who want to improve their English language skills while investigating and debating the impacts of human development (industrial, commercial, and residential) on air, land, and water resources. The focus is not only going to be on the causes of current environmental challenges but also on ideas for potential solutions to existing local and global problems. Authentic English texts and media will be used in group discussions and to craft written responses. Individual presentations will allow students to report on an issue of personal interest.

        This semester we are going to take a closer look at the urban environment and are going to envision the city of the future. By 2050, 70 to 80 percent of the world's population, which by then is going to be almost 10 billion, will be living in cities. To get our cities ready for the future, we need to not only solve today's environmental problems, such as air pollution and climate change, but we need to try to also anticipate what other new challenges the future may bring. We will explore various topics through classroom debates, small group work, listening and reading exercises, as well as presentations, and we will work together towards our common goal of developing a more sustainable and livable city of the future.

Grammar, vocabulary and intercultural communication are trained to the same extent, and all four language skills (reading, listening, speaking, writing) are practised. The learning tasks are designed so that the students can use the French language in authentic communicative situations from the very beginning.
