Course Syllabus

Abstract

The discipline refers to the variable educational tracks offered to students of the curricula for Bachelor's and Specialist's degrees of choice while mastering the optional course of English in accordance with the Concept of the Development of English-language Communicative Competence of HSE Students. The Programme is designed for the 2nd-year students. It continues “English for General Communication Purposes. Advanced Course-1, 2”. The course suggests a more in-depth study of a variety of communicative situations. An expended number of vocabulary units and grammatical structures is acquired and applied throughout the course, which makes undergraduates feel comfortable in a multicultural university atmosphere. The use of assorted modes of working in the study process contributes to the development of soft skills including time-management, teamwork, presentation skills, and others. The course exclusively employs authentic materials such as articles, reviews, essays, podcasts, and videos (e.g. TedTalks) as well as games and web-based platforms to build strong reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills. The adaptability and saturation of the course provide each student with an opportunity to tailor the Programme to suit their individual interests and needs. By the end of the course, students will gain the skills and confidence to communicate effectively in English at the C1-C2 level.
