Learning outcomes
The aim of this course is to extend the communicative competence of students, especially fluency and accuracy. This course will improve their ability to read and listen to authentic texts with comprehension and develop their vocabulary to the level of experienced user (C1) as it is defined for individual competences in The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
At the end of the second semester, the students will be able to: - Express themselves clearly, choose appropriate formulations of broad language content without having to reduce linguistic resources; - Choose appropriate level of formality of speech; - Give complex descriptions and narrations and incorporate sub-themes; - Express and develop ideas and finish them with appropriate conclusions; - Use conditional sentences at an advanced level (in terms of grammatical correctness) and modal verbs in the present and past tense; - Use expanded vocabulary with emphasis on phrasal verbs; - Express themselves on a given topic confidently and intelligibly; - Recognize a wide range of idiomatic and colloquial expressions and apply these in a practical conversation.
