3. Course contents *

This course will deepen the knowledge gained in Text and communication 1. With a very practical approach we will apply the seen and newly learned theory to mainly objective types of text like argumentative and academic texts as well as some prose and poetry. We will again handle terms like genre, discourse, different features of different types of texts, figures of speech and the language used in these texts.

There will also be a focus on spoken texts like TEDtalks, political speeches and academic presentations.
