    This course is intended for speakers of English as a foreign language. Entry level is minimally English level B2 according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). IMPORTANT: Course structure and time commitment This is a 6 credit-point course, equivalent to 180 workload hours; of these only ~70 are contact hours. The other 110 hours will involve work in your own time, both before, during and after the course. A large part of that work contributes to the portfolio that your grade is based on. The extent of work required BEFORE the course may be unusual, but is for your own benefit: the course depends on active participation on your part and the block structure does not leave you enough time to adequately prepare during the course, particularly during the first week. To help you structure your time, and also give us enough time to provide feedback, we require: Each participant to give one 30-minute oral presentation during the course. This will be followed by a detailed discussion of the language, structure, and the presentation. The talk must be based on your own work, preferably current, or from your Bachelor’s degree. The presentation file (either MS Powerpoint or, better, a PDF) must be uploaded to the folder “Oral presentation files” in StudIP by Friday, March 11th, midnight. Other files, involving work in your own time on various tasks (to be specified at the introductory meeting and a subsequent email) must also be uploaded before or, in some cases, during the block course. After the block course, you will write an essay; the submission deadline will be agreed on during the course. TAKE-HOME MESSAGE: If you cannot find the required time before, during, and after the course, or have conflicts with the scheduled contact hours, please de-register from the course now and give those who can a fair chance.
