Intensive English for Academic Study

This module aims to develop three core aspects of academic expression, namely writing essays, participating in discussions and delivering oral presentations. Through weekly academic writing and speaking classes, students are encouraged to improve and expand their vocabulary and style, linguistic accuracy and fluency. They also address general aspects of academic discourse, such as thinking critically, evaluating academic texts, constructing arguments, and integrating evidence from sources, which are relevant to both oral and written contexts.
