Learning Objectives

The aim of this course is to develop students' competence in all four components of the English Language: Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening through work on educational-themed texts.  

Program

The course starts in the second semester (February 2022) and consists of four hours per week.

On enrolment and before the start of the course, you are requested to complete the short student questionnaire (which is anonymous and can be found on Blended Learning).  The purpose of the questionnire is to communicate preferences - personal and study - to allow the course organiser to make the course as useful and relevant to students as possible.

The focus of the course is on text comprehension and includes micro skills such as note-taking, identifying key concepts, summarising and discussing.

The programme is to be confirmed, but essentially will consist of a mix of group, pair and individual work on given texts relevant to Education Science.

Bridging Courses

Students will be encouraged to expand their language undertaking independent study to make them more flexible and creative in their language use.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

By the end of the course you will be able to:

- understand the gist of specialist texts.
- identify key concepts of specialist texts.
- summarize texts
discuss ideas and give opinions about specialist topics

All the above objectives can be achieved through lesson attendance and practice. 

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

Students are encouraged to attend workshops which serve to consolidate language skills (in particular reading, listening and speaking) held by Professor Patricia Barzotti on a weekly basis (TBC). The starting date will be communicated via the Blended Learning Forum.  The Centro Linguistico d'Atteneo (CLA) offers free courses for university students at every level (see cla.uniurb.it).
