Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The practical English course is a system of modules. During the course the students will develop their knowledge and abilities with regard to contextualized learning of English grammar and vocabulary and reading as well as academic writing, listening and speaking at a consistent C1 level.

The three components are elements of one subject and each must be passed in order for the student to receive a positive grade, calculated on the basis of the mean average from the three components.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course consists of the following components:

USE OF ENGLISH:

The course consists of practical exercises related to such skills as reading, use of grammar and use of vocabulary. The materials to be covered during the course include a selection of C1 tests, which combine thorough development of advanced level language skills and systematic training in exam techniques used in Cambridge English Qualifications, such as C1 Advanced and BEC Higher so as to build real-life English skills and transferable skills necessary to succeed in the next stage of studies and academic activity.

Content distribution :

- revision regarding gerunds and infinitives, reporting and modal verbs, conditional sentences and ‘wishes’

- CAE Tests for the 2015 exam specifications – use of English, reading comprehension

- vocabulary building and expanding reading comprehension through authentic texts

- integrated skills: ‘Reporting and discussing results’

- academic register practice: proofreading and error correction

ACADEMIC WRITING

The module develops students’ academic writing skills on C1 level and focuses on the skills required to write a BA thesis. Throughout the summer semester, paraphrasing, summarising, citing, and referencing will be practised in longer texts, with particular attention paid to the ability to work with academic sources and to document their use in accordance with the Department of English stylesheet.

Students will learn how to evaluate and revise their own work and that of their peers (peer-assessment and self-assessment) to improve language accuracy with regard to advanced grammar, lexis and academic register; they will work on texts individually and in groups to improve their clarity and coherence.

Content distribution:

- argumentation in longer academic texts (logic of the argument and coherence of the text)

- vocabulary and language structures used in academic texts (collocations, hedging, avoiding linguistic vagueness),

- use of punctuation,

- revision and correction of BA excerpts (self-correction and peer-correction),

- editing the BA thesis (Department of English BA stylesheet),

- appropriate use of sources in longer texts.

SPEAKING AND LISTENING

During class, students will practice formal speaking skills through accuracy-based exercises (grammatical, lexical and communicative) and fluency-based exercises in order to achieve C1 level, expand abstract vocabulary and activate it in a discussion, where the emphasis will be on the ability to specify and defend one's own opinions in a group discussion as well as to present and cogently explain the ideas of one’s BA thesis. Advanced authentic (intellectually stimulating) texts used will represent a variety of current topics and cover key areas of academic and professional practice.

Content distribution:

- CAE Tests – speaking and listening comprehension

- academic register practice – mock BA defence exams

- data analysis, understanding and explaining charts

- the language of drawing conclusions and offering recommendation

- science and the public, working with an academic supervisor

- seminar skills/lecture skills practice

Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

USE OF ENGLISH

Observation of participation, preparation and homework as well as Moodle assignment completion documented in an activity log (U1, U2, K1)

Mid-semester test and final test (W1, U1, U2, K1)

ACADEMIC WRITING

Observation of participation documented in an activity log (K2, K3, U5)

Mid-semester and final writing assignment (W2, U3, U4, U5)

SPEAKING AND LISTENING:

Continuous assessment of student activity in group work (U6, U8, K4)

Assessed prepared and improvised presentations (U7, U8, K4, U10)

Mid-semester tests (including vocabulary and listening comprehension) and final oral test (W3, U9, K4)

Assessment criteria:

Practical English course grades will be given in reference to the following criteria:

fail – 0 – 59%

satisfactory - 60 – 69%

satisfactory plus - 70 – 75%

good - 76 – 85%

good plus - 86 – 90%

very good - 91 – 100%

The final grade in the course is assigned to the average of the three components’ percentages.

The final test or assignment in every Practical English module is administered to determine the extent to which students have met the assumed learning outcomes.

The final test or assignment has to be passed for the successful completion of the course. Students who have failed a test or assignment are allowed one retake, which in the case of the final test is administered in the retake examination session.

The students are evaluated in accordance with university regulations, and they must attend all course meetings. Informed participation in class discussions – based on completion of the assigned reading and supportive collaboration with classmates – is also required. Each class absence has to be excused in the first week after the lesson missed. The final grade percentage will be reduced for every unexcused absence.

A grade average of at least 60% must be achieved to pass each Practical English module, so the students who have passed the final test but failed to obtain the required cumulative grade point average have to retake the final test and achieve a result sufficient to make up for the points lost due to unexcused absences.

Instructors are authorized to refuse credit when the student’s absenteeism rate is around 50%.

Timely completion of assigned tasks is obligatory. In the case of assignments submitted after the deadline or re-submitted, the grade is lowered.

NOTE: all the above principles apply to all kinds of classes: traditional classroom and all forms of remote teaching. In case of online teaching, the tests may likewise be administered remotely in a form facilitating the verification of the achievement of learning outcomes.
