In particular, it aims to improve oral and written English skills to a level that would enable them to function in an academic environment.

1. distinguish between formal and informal language both in speaking and writing
2. demonstrate a sufficient range of language to give clear descriptions and express viewpoints, and to clearly formulate and construct argumentation in English speaking and writing
3. write an academic report in English that is coherent, grammatically accurate and contains a wide range of subject appropriate and academic vocabulary
4. deliver an academic presentation in English with a clear structure, professional delivery, appropriate vocabulary, grammatical accuracy, overall coherence, followed by a well-managed question-and-answer session
5. present opinions, research findings and defend points of view in English through participation in meetings and discussions
6. cooperate with other students
7. reflect on their own writing and speaking performance
8. provide and process constructive feedback

Omschrijving Nestor-based study material provides contexts through which students become familiar with academic English standards. Through practice both inside and outside of class, they will become proficient users of language that is at the core of academic business study and communication. The course focusses specifically on writing and presenting an academic paper. Students will also be encouraged to reflect and to evaluate their learning in terms of their strengths, weaknesses and learning goals.
