This course adapts to suit your level and a specific language learning goal you have. It is ideal for people who want to improve their English but either:
1. don’t have time to attend a regular class or
2. have a specific learning requirement which may not be met in a group-based course.
The aim of this course is to provide support for a specific project, e.g. preparing a presentation in English or proofreading a paper you are writing.
Registration by Sept. 11th 2017. After this date you will be contacted to set up your appointment(s). You can schedule two separate 45-minute sessions or one 90-minute session. We ask that you name your specific project when you sign up for your meeting. Then your meeting(s) will take place face-to-face at an agreed location or online. A total of 2 academic hours are available for each participant.
Please note: It is possible to sign up for both this course and English á la carte. Nonetheless, a participant will only be accepted for both courses if resources are available as of Sept. 11, 2017.
Total possible duration of the course: ca. 3 months (meetings take place between Sept. 11 and Dec. 9, 2017).
