The course comprises exercises which aim at gaining knowledge and skills required to carry out copy-editing tasks in English texts. In the winter semester, the exercises focus on spelling (in British and American varieties), grammar and punctuation conventions in their prescribed, correct usage that will enable the students to bring texts into conformance with pre-set rules, including house-style rules and rules of correct usage. In the summer semester, the students acquire the knowledge of style and register in written texts, learn to assess the readability of text and edit it for clarity and concision.
