This course aims to further improve and polish your English skills in psychology, since a good command of English has become indispensable to students, researchers and practitioners. The course includes written and oral exercises such as summaries, discussions and presentations that enhance your productive competencies as well as reading and listening tasks that improve your receptive skills aimed towards automating both processes.
To optimize your understanding of demanding and complex academic publications, various reading tasks on a range of psychology topics are assigned throughout the course. Furthermore, writing techniques are introduced and common phrases as well as special terminology are practiced. More complex listening exercises familiarize you with various presentation styles and accents to improve your capacity to easily extract and understand essential information.
In general your fluency and precision in reading, discussing, presenting and writing are consolidated creating even more confidence. You are encouraged to work on your own materials and topics of interest, and you will receive additional individual support where needed.
This course will take place at the Department of Psychology (Missionsstrasse 64a).
