Bachelor’s students who want to prepare for courses in English. Master’s students who do not have a good command of English. This course prepares participants to use English in an academic environment.

There are no special entry requirements except for the students’ level of English. The course is aimed at students whose proficiency level is at least B1 (lower-intermediate). Before the course we will ask you to do a test to check your level.

All registrants for this course must take a Placement Test before the course starts (between 18 July and 5 August). Please contact the secretariat to make an appointment secretariat.cdl@unine.ch or 032 718 11 05.

At the end of the intensive course, students will be able to:

  • Interact in general discussions in English about their academic subject
  • Do a short presentation based on an article
  • use intermediate grammatical structures in writing and speaking
  • write a short summary
  • use several tools (dictionary, machine translation, thesaurus, etc.)
  • understand the main ideas of a lecture in English
  • read and understand a general article about an academic topic

 

Each session presents tasks and exercises focusing on the four language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading). Material and examples come from Academia.

Students will get 3 ECTS at the end of the course providing they hand in a short summary, do a short presentation and get a grade of at least 4 in the end-of-course test. Any request for a possible recognition of these credits in the student's main course of study is the student's responsibility.

The course material will be distributed in class.
