Cursusdoelen
If you complete this course successfully, you will have the basic knowledge and skills to give an academic presentation in your field of study, and to interact with others in an English-language classroom. In addition, you will have learnt to modify your pronunciation of English in order to be better understood by both native and non-native speakers of English. Last but not least, you will learn to recognise a number of well-known native and non-native accents of English and to understand these better and with less effort.
Inhoud
Intended for students who have not taken any other courses in academic speaking in English, this course will help you acquire the basic knowledge and skills required to give academic presentations in English, and to interact with lecturers and other students in an academic context. Apart from general presentation skills, this includes improving your fluency in academic English, and your ability to interact more spontaneously with different groups of speakers using an appropriate register in English. In addition, all course participants – regardless of their language background – will be taught a number of techniques to modify their pronunciation of English to facilitate communication with other speakers of English, both native and non-native. We will also review a number of well-known accents of English which may present challenges to those unfamiliar with them.
 
It should be noted that this course is not intended to prepare students to produce any written work. Students interested in improving their ability to produce written academic work are referred to a separate course entitled Academic Writing.
 
This course is not open to students who have passed Academic English (EN1V14001), The Sound Lab (EN1V13001) or English Language & Linguistics for TCS/Minor (EN1V14002).

In addition to the lectures, students will participate in two tutorials of two hours each. In one of these series of tutorials, students will be taught how to modify their pronunciation of English and analyse a number of different accents. In the other series of tutorials, students will be engaged in debate, be given the opportunity to give presentations on subjects from their own field of study, and be asked to provide constructive feedback on those given by fellow students.

Voorbereiding bijeenkomsten
Students complete a number of reading assignments before coming to class, and practice a number of pronunciation exercises. They will also be asked to prepare a presentation on a subject from their own field of study.

Bijdrage aan groepswerk
