Omschrijving Nestor-based study material provides contexts through which you will become familiar with academic English standards. The aim is that through practice both inside and outside class, you will become proficient users of language that is at the core of professional communication. The course focusses specifically on producing an academic standard written paper and oral presentation. You will also be encouraged to reflect on and evaluate your learning progress in terms of your strengths, weaknesses and (periodically adjusted) learning goals.
