This course gives undergraduate international students an opportunity to develop the academic English language and study skills they need to succeed in mainstream university courses that do not have English language support. Students practice discourse skills, such as relating their ideas to those of others in discussions and using cohesive devices to link ideas in systematic written arguments. Students also practice basic research skills, develop genre awareness of typical academic writing tasks, improve their listening comprehension and notetaking skills, and increase their active academic vocabulary.
