Аннотация

The course has been designed for the students of the ‘Economics and Politics in Asia’ BA HSE Double Degree Programme and is aimed at preparing them for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam. The course will enable students to develop their academic reading, listening, speaking, writing and debate skills. We will use plenty of authentic and culturally-enriching materials as well as some of the latest IELTS preparation books. This is a blended-learning course, which involves a lot of online and offline (in-class) interaction, training and practice.
