English Writing Success – English for Academic Purposes – Int. & Adv.Are you nervous about your upcoming university English entrance exam? Are you struggling with essay writing this semester? Would you like to develop your academic reading and writing skills? This course targets all students with at least an intermediate level proficiency in English. The primary goal of this course is to enable students to produce top-notch academic texts.

Levels Offered:

BeginnersA beginner-level language learner may know some English vocabulary, but grammar knowledge is very limited. Sentences take time to produce and are not always easy to understand. Listening to English speakers who are having a conversation or a discussion is very difficult. A beginner may be able to read well enough, but has difficulty communicating fluidly.
Intermediate An intermediate-level language learner knows much vocabulary and employs several grammatical tenses. They are able to communicate well enough and produce meaningful language. They are able to function in English, but often make errors, employ inadequate forms or still struggle with listening and more advanced writing.
AdvancedAn advanced-level language learner is very fluent in English, knows most vocabulary, employs most forms and tenses accurately and can communicate in any context. Advanced students typically need to improve advanced grammar use, pronunciation, writing skills and the more academic, professional and/or artistic aspects of the English language.
