Annotation:The course aims to improve the level of academic English of the UO doctoral students and is focused on developing language skills indispensable in an academic environment. Upon completion of the course, students are able to express complex content in spoken and written academic English and to understand professional spoken and written discourse. Students work on developing independent spoken and written expression and communication skills by simulating real-life communication situations and focusing on the interactive aspects of academic genres (particularly various forms of research presentation). In addition to individual feedback on sub-tasks, attention is paid to the accuracy and range of vocabulary, grammatical structures and stylistic demands required to complete them. The content of the course reflects the current language competence, needs and scientific orientations of its participants and is divided into two entry levels (B1 and B2).
