Extensive Reading will be done for homework


In Academic English III you will learn about some common types of texts that can be found in everyday contexts and which form the building blocks of longer, academic texts. You will learn that because these texts have evolved to carry out various social purposes they differ in their structure, grammar patterns and choice of vocabulary.
Texts that will be examined are instructions which tell us how to do something; descriptions which give information about particular people and places; narratives which tell an entertaining story and reviews which have the purpose of giving information about stories and evaluating them.
The course aims to raise language learners' awareness of the conventions of spoken and written English in order to enhance their ability in using English. Through extensive reading, learners will be exposed to a wide range of reading materials and will acquire the language structures and expressions they need to use in writing and speaking as well as deepening their cultural understanding and global outlook.
