Academic Language Skills at levels from upper intermediate up are run once a week for 90 minutes. Each semester we offer 15 meetings. The course is run based on own materials and materials produced by the course participants during classes.

The aim of the course is to create a possibility to develop English language skills during the discussions on current problems and issues, which are presented by the course participants, who usually represent different fields of knowledge.

The course is run in an interactive manner, which allows to develop communication skills. We especially stress out the pronunciation and speaking skills. We will use such activating techniques as participant own presentations, including the multimedia, pair and group work, active work on texts, etc.

At the end of the semester each participant will obtain an individual Progress Report, with potential hints for the further improvements.
