Aim

The aim of the course is to enhance students' ability to communicate effectively in English, in speech as well as in writing, to enable students to use English for academic writing and oral presentations during their studies at Chalmers, and to prepare students for a professional career, which will most likely demand very good communicative skills. Another aim is to develop critical reflection on communication and knowledge.
