Academic English is a specific type of English (in terms of vocabulary, types of text used, how the texts are organised, etc.) that you need in your studies, to be able to read and interpret your study materials and to be able to write about the subjects covered during your studies. The aim of this class is to learn the basics of academic English to develop your writing and communication skills. The classes are set up in the form of a workshop.
