English Conversation Workshop: Talking in Academic Contexts

20. Februar 2017, 14:15 - 29. Mai 2017, 16:00

In many academic contexts, the ability to switch to talking in English is essential for participating meaningfully in conversations. If English is, however, not the language of every-day usage, this switching can become quite challenging. Furthermore, even academics who are regularly using English to communicate at the workplace, often feel that they are not making the most out of talking in English in professional academic.

In this course, we will, therefore, practice the use of English in typical academic situations. Each meeting will consist of a brief input on type of rhetorical usage that will then be applied through various activities with feedback. Thus, this workshop is primarily focusing on acutal speaking and you will get many opportunities to practice your academic talking skills.
