3. Course contents *

The existing knowledge of grammar and vocabulary is expanded with specific skills such as accurate pronunciation, appropriate spelling, either AmE or BrE, usage and idiomatic language. Students can work independently and critically with source material and know how to cross-reference the authority of dictionaries with online content from institutions such as CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, BBC ... The student's knowledge of American and/or English (online) newspapers has been expanded. Students get acquainted with the less spectacular highlights from the broader Anglo-Saxon world and discover a rich source culture in doing so.
