On line

This workshop is offered in collaboration with the University of Leipzig, Germany. In a total of 5 sessions of  2 lessons each, key aspects of the use of English for academic purposes will be highlighted and correct usage encouraged. Each lesson will have a length of 45 min.  For this purpose, both written skills, such as the scientific reporting of results and methods, and oral skills, such as pronunciation, presentation or scientific discussion, are trained. Participants will comprehensively expand their competence in the academic use of English. The course will cover the following topics:  • Common Errors in Academic English • Writing up Results and Methods in English • Pronunciation Practice in English • Academic Discussions in English • Presenting your Academic Project in English For optimal delivery and maximum outcome for participants, we will limit the number of students to 15. In addition, our offer includes communication with the participants, Administrative handling and communication and Certificates of attendance for course participants Registration is free. Given the limited number of participants we will give preference to PhD students and young researchers. In case you register, please make sure you can attend all sessions so that you do not block someone else’s slot. A solid knowledge of the English language as well as high motivation of the participants is a requirement because the course will be interactive. In case of over-subscription, interviews may be conducted with applicants to assess their level of English as a criterion for eligibility. If deemed a success, we plan to  offer future editions of this course (So, please do not worry in case you cannot participate in this round).
