Many TSU faculty and graduate students need and want to use English in their academic work. This course will be about reading – writing – understanding – and speaking English for academic purposes. Some of the topics covered will be letters and email – CVs – making a presentation at a conference – writing an abstract – following your topic in a journal – and talking with international colleagues, along with publishing articles.
Course members should already have an intermediate level of English. All lectures, discussions, and materials will be in English (without translation). There will be some weekly work at home, and one consultation with the instructor. Attendance at every session is required.
The course is open to faculty and laboratory members and graduate students. Seats are limited to 20.Priority for enrollment will be given to new course members and to those working in the centers of excellence and newly established laboratories; those working in joint Russian-international educational programs; and those preparing lecture/seminar courses in English.
Those who meet the course participation standards will be eligible for a certificate of completion from ИДО.
