Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content:
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 identify key text types and their functions as well as characteristic features of such texts. They also become aware of how they can apply this knowledge in a professional setting.

Aims:
- 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 and help experts to communicate these texts to various audiences
- to develop an understanding of effective communication in professional settings

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