Descripción del curso
The aim of learning English in academic contexts is ultimately to successfully use the language for communication and professional development; it means for the learner to be able to use the language and to have knowledge of how it is used in different contexts. English is conceived, therefore, both as a tool and a way of gaining knowledge and personal insight of the world through the culture of the foreign language. Language skills addressed include: listening comprehension, fluency development, oral intelligibility, reading, grammar, writing, and vocabulary development and a balance of receptive (reading, listening) and productive (speaking, writing) skills are developed through communicative classes and self‐study tasks. The linguistic contents and communication abilities developed in this course are aligned with the Basic User Level A2.1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning, Teaching,
and Assessment (CEFR) through the development of the four language skills.
