The learning objectives of the graduate programme in Philology, Linguistic, and Literary Traditions include independent language skills in a language spoken in the EU. To this end, the MA English Language Workshop aims to help students acquire CEFR B2 competences in English. At the end of the course, students will be expected to understand the main concepts of a discourse of a certain length and follow quite complex arguments; to understand narrative texts; to communicate in a sufficiently spontaneous and natural way so as to interact with native speakers; to express their opinions; to write clearly and articulately on a wide range of topics. The MA English Language Workshop will also prepare students for the Cambridge First (B2) exam tasks.
At the end of the MA English Language Workshop students will be expected to possess CEFR B2 (“Vantage”) competences in English.
Students are expected to acquire language skills that will enable them to express themselves clearly and correctly in English. They are also expected to develop sufficient metalinguistic skills.
Students will be expected to understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics; to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible and without strain; to produce a clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue.
