        Good writing is much more than accurate spelling and appropriate grammar. This course will help you identify, explore and manipulate the functional elements of language. In addition to exploring the textual conventions around common writing types and styles such as academic writing, CVs & cover letters, scientific reports and essays, this course will give students the opportunity to practise and expand their knowledge of sentence structures, paragraph coherence and overall text organization. In addition to in-depth writing practice, guidance will also be given on how to avoid typical writing errors, in order to develop a more accurate and sophisticated style.

        Learning outcomes

        Students can analyse different texts (e.g. CVs, academic essays, reports), improve their own writing style and write their own texts in academic English.

        Prerequisites and co-requisites

        Students who have successfully passed level B1.2 or who have placed on B2. Students should have a good command of grammar on this level.

        Working across cultures is evermore in demand in today’s university and work environment. Achieving top performance for internationally-based tasks and projects is at the hands of good management. This course will touch on challenges faced and work on skills needed to manage such projects with success. ‘Practice makes perfect’, so we will strongly focus on project-oriented communication skills involving: introducing project topic, networking relationships, influencing the team, solving timing issues effectively, teleconferencing, negotiating solutions, promoting advantages, presenting final results.
        In this course, students will also explore characteristics of the ideal project manager, the virtual challenge, develop a stakeholder analysis as well as discuss risk and conflict management. Professional skills such as giving feedback, addressing conflicts in emails, developing Gantt charts and understanding other project management tools while building intercultural competences working through selected case studies will also be addressed. Students will acquire special phrases and vocabulary of the field; grammar will be reviewed as needed. An individual action plan should be maintained by each participant, thus reviewing earlier scenarios, hard-won vocabulary, and implementing newly acquired knowledge and skills to a given project/case. At the end of this course you should be able to establish and introduce your own project in a Gantt chart and present this to the class.
