Annotation:The course aims to equip students with practical skills enabling them to master the writing of texts in English as a foreign language. The course focuses both on grammatical accuracy and suitable choice of vocabulary, and also covers the key basic principles involved in writing academic texts in the English language, with a special emphasis on the needs of students writing Bachelor theses in English. Students are acquainted with the linguistic and technical principles of academic texts. A major element of the teaching is the class-based evaluation of students' written work including discussion of possible solutions to linguistic and technical problems. 2AKP1 is followed by 2AKP2.
