Założenia (opisowo):

Students with a good command of English (B2 or better) are welcome to enrol.

This course is intended for students willing to develop their academic writing skills in English. The course has been designed to tap the potential of students with multiple academic specialisms.

Skrócony opis:

This course teaches practical rules for improved use of English in academic contexts.

Pełny opis:

The course will focus on the stylistic and structural differences existing between a range of varieties of academic discourse in Polish and English. The class will involve instruction, analysis and hands-on practice in relevant stylistic, grammatical and formal conventions. Students will become familiar with the basic conventions relating to the different types and varieties of scholarly discourse.

The course features a strong self-study component to ensure continued self-improvement. The instructors will recommend some quality learning material and discuss effective methods for language learning and reinforcement.

The course is very hands-on. Over the course of the term students will write and improve academic texts of their own, and publish some of them on Wikipedia. Credits will be given based on a portfolio of shorter pieces and the final project (Wikipedia entry).
