Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course equips students with some of the skills required to cope with professional genres and provides an overview of the use of English in at least two occupational domains (one of them being Economics/Business Administration). Students will
- identify key text types and their functions in a professional domain
- identify characteristic features of such texts
- become familiar with the main procedures and conventions of a professional domain

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment is based on regular assignments, class participation, a student research project, and a final test

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

- to develop the skills necessary to adapt to and acquire a wide range of new genres
- to develop awareness of the parameters that shape professional genres and how these parameters affect linguistic encoding and text structure
- to cope productively and receptively with highly specialised text types
- ultimately, to communicate effectively in professional settings

Examination topics

Communicative language practice based on the discussion of concepts from genre analysis.
