Course

This is an advanced course in (academic) English, which is targeted at students who already have a very good command of the language ( to be determined by participation in the ACTO level test), and who wish to further refine their knowledge of the language. The course aims to give participants maximal opportunity to participate actively in realistic contexts for the use of (academic) English, through the medium of a series of discussions, in which students take on specific roles (e.g. discussion leader, note-taker). These are conducted on the basis of a variety of texts drawn from a range of Anglophone sources, allowing students to develop their (critical) reading, listening and speaking skills. In addition, there is a strong focus on the acquisition and use of advanced vocabulary, in particular collocations, with remedial grammar work as required.

Who is it for?

This course is for VUB students who already have a very good command of the language and who would like to develop their (academic) English skills further.
