Course Syllabus

Abstract

The program is for the 2nd-year students. "English for General Academic Purposes. Upper-Intermediate Course-3" is designed to develop foreign-language communicative, integrated, and critical thinking skills that are based on Regulations for Interim and Ongoing Assessment of Students at National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Concept of the 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 the core tasks relevant to all students, such as working out the main points of an academic text or lecture (such as biology, economics, humanities, and others). There are no blocking points of assessment.
