English for Academic Purposes in the UK (Age 14 to 18)

You will not be alone if you feel a little nervous about the day-to-day business of university study – and native speakers are often just as worried as you are! This course shows you how you can meet the challenges ahead of you.

You’ll pick up some really valuable tips for listening well, and also for taking useful notes. Writing: For many subjects, you’ll have to write essays. Today, you’ll be working at improving your approach to essays, and to other pieces of academic writing. Speaking: Most university courses will require you to attend seminars, possibly to take a lead role, but certainly to say something! This unit will help you to gain the confidence needed to take advantage of seminars.
