Course Syllabus

Abstract

The discipline refers to the variable educational tracks offered to students of the curricula for bachelor's and master's degree at choice while mastering the optional course of English in accordance with the Concept of Development of English-language Communicative Competence of HSE Students. The Programme is for the 1st-year students. English for General Academic Purposes is designed to develop foreign-language communicative and integrated and critical thinking skills that are based on Regulations for Interim and Ongoing Assessments of Students at National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Concept of Development of English-language Communicative Competence of HSE Students. Every student has slightly different needs, depending on their chosen discipline, cultural background and other factors. However, there are main skills, tasks, and academic language that are common to most disciplines and are relevant to the needs of most students preparing to study English at university level. The course is focused on core tasks relevant to all students, such as working out the main points of an academic text or lecture (such perspectives as knowledge, motivation, nature, power and growth). There are no blocking controls.
