The basic grammatical structures are revised at a high pace (e.g. conditional clauses, reference and relational markers, the passive, the use of articles, etc.) and new scientific terminology from different fields is taught. Throughout the course, these new phrases and structures are revised and studied in depth in different scientific situations.
The lessons also offer reading materials that provide a context for these new structures. Various self-assignments and writing exercises are offered in order to facilitate a structural assimilation of the course content.
In the language laboratory, students can practise their listening skills and work on their pronunciation.
