Аннотация

The English Language course prepares students to use English in their further academic study on the University of London external programme. This is understood as being a “competent user” as defined by the Association of Language Testers in Europe Level 3 and realized as IELTS band 6 (the student has generally effective command of the language despite some inaccuracies, inappropriacies and misunderstanding; can use and understand fairly complex language, particularly in familiar situations) or a “good user” – IELTS band 7 (the student has operational command of the language, though with occasional inaccuracies, inappropriacies and misunderstanding in some situations; generally handles complex language well and understands detailed reasoning). The obtained skills are examined in the form of the IELTS Academic Module taken externally and administered by an independent examination centre.
