All the components of Academic Speaking and Writing discussed above will be included in the coursebook, which was developed by Linguapolis on the basis of our experience with similar courses, error analyses of student research papers and course feedback from students who took the course in the past. As a result, the course meets the needs of the target group perfectly.
The theory in the course materials will be taught and practised using relevant examples (academic text extracts). The materials also provide useful reference materials for future use.
During the course, participants will have ample opportunity to practise all components in class and between classes (homework assignments). The summer school emphasises individual coaching by giving participants individual feedback on their own papers and presentations, which allows them to work on their own specific problem areas. It also gives participants the opportunity to focus on projects they are working on at the time of the course. The theory in the coursebook gives participants the information they need to remedy the issues raised in the lecturer’s individual feedback.
