The overall objective of the course is to assist students to become fully autonomous language learners and to enable them to achieve the level of written and oral fluency that will be required of them in an intercultural workplace at home or abroad. It also aims to further develop the students' ability to apply a range of transferable skills such as time management, team work, project management and oral presentation skills.
1. Extract information from a wide range of long and complex documents and audio-visual sources on concrete and abstract topics.
2. Present a complex topic to an audience with a high degree of fluency appropriate to this level.
3. Write a clear and well structured report on objectives, methodology, content and summary of findings of work carried out throughout the semester using clear and detailed language, explain his/her position on a current issue and indicate the benefits and drawbacks of various options.
4. Use and evaluate on-line and hard copy resources, e.g. dictionaries, thesaurus, valency grammars, parallel corpora for life-long learning.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
