goals

The aim of this course is to provide you with the tools and strategies necessary to enable you to speak and write more effectively about your subject area and participate actively in courses, seminars and working groups of your study programme.

Assessment: The course grade will be based on the written and the oral versions of the poster presentation.

content

As in Part 1 of the course (English for aca­de­mic pur­po­ses), students will receive training in all of the language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) required for effective participation in the Laser and Photonics master programme.

To this end, we will continue to work on authentic texts relevant to the field of Lasers and Photonics (extracts from textbooks, texts from scientific journals, popular science magazines etc.) to further develop your reading skills and improve your understanding and use of key terminology.

The main focus of the writing component is a poster presentation. Together we will go through the steps necessary to create an authentic scientific poster to present your field of research interest. During a simulated poster presentation session, you will present your research to other students and invited guests.
