Course description

This course will help you to develop your confidence and effectiveness in using spoken English in a range of academic situations, and you will also be able to develop your academic listening skills. The course covers the language and strategies you need to obtain complex information, to negotiate and persuade in 'conflict' situations, to structure and deliver short informative talks and to take part in small group discussions. Throughout the course, time will be made available for evaluation, comment and language analysis. Some of the sessions may be devoted to individual tutorials.
