This course is designed to support the development of academic language competencies across the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students will become more self-critical writers as a result of writing and editing their own and others' work and they will analyse language and structures in articles, essays and other literature. Students will broaden their understanding of ideas and arguments through the language of lectures, talks, debates and podcasts, with group and pair work providing opportunities for speaking and constructive reflection and peer feedback.

Regular attendance is mandatory from the first day of teaching (minimum 80% attendance).
