Master’s students who have part of / their entire curriculum in English, doctoral students. 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 a low B2 (upper-intermediate). 

If you are not sure of your level, you can check the evaluation forms on our page “Language courses”.

 
 

At the end of the class, the student will be able to :

  • speak and communicate in English-speaking seminars;
  • do a short presentation in English;
  • write a short text in academic English (data description);
  • use a number of upper-intermediate points in academic grammar both orally and in writing;
  • use a learner’s dictionary to learn and develop academic vocabulary.

Short test at the end of the course; short oral presentation and short written data description. Students will also build a ePortfolio with the traces of their autonomous and small group work.

The final mark will be an average of the marks received for the test, the presentation, the data description and the portfolio.

Each day will be organized around two to four online synchronous sessions and short sessions of self-study to prepare the material that will be discussed in the online sessions, along the concept of flipped classroom. Participants will thus get a lot of speaking practice. Several technological tools will be used to keep the sessions interactive and  the small group will allow the teacher to provide precise feedback to all participants by the end of the course.

The course material is going to be made available on Moodle.
