The course

  • You will develop the receptive skills (reading and listening) which you need to follow an English-language course at the university.

  • This course focuses explicitly on the specific characteristics of the more formal academic style. The primary emphasis is on academic vocabulary.

  • You learn to apply the academic register while writing summaries and abstracts.

  • You brush up that important grammar you’d forgotten.

  • Practical exercises give you the opportunity of improving your presentation skills.  

For whom?

This course is intended for those with a good basic knowledge of English who wish to further  develop their English language (academic) skills further.

Enrolment is open to VUB students and staff.
