Course specific prerequisites

Oral and written communication in Swedish or a corresponding course.


The aim of the course is to improve the students' English to enhance their understanding of English in their educational environment. This involves improving their grammar, vocabulary, oral and written proficiency, and their general comprehension of English. The goal is to establish a communicative awareness and a proficiency level where the students can express themselves in correct English without making fundamental mistakes. On completing the course, the students should be able to summarise and present technically oriented English both orally and in writing. The course also aims at refining the communicative strategies establihed through the course in oral and written communication in Swedish.


The course comprises two main areas:
One is oral proficiency involving language lab exercises, listening comprehension, discussions, and oral presentations. The other is written proficiency, which includes basic grammar and textual structures, textual and reader analysis. Written work includes summaries, instructions, and revision. These two areas are integrated through studying technically oriented texts focusing on vocabulary, idiomatic English, and textual as well as linguistic structures.


The course is organised in a 4-hour session per week with 2 hours of written proficiency and 2 hours of oral proficiency including language lab sessions.
