This course is done online, in Moodlerooms, by completing some learning assignments on Academic English: its register and style, the typical grammar structures, and features of formal written language in scientific reports and summaries (e.g. vocabulary and phrases), and writing as a process. The tasks also cover reporting about the status, the aims, and the topic of a thesis, familiarising oneself with the language and structure of Abstracts, distinquishing between different types of abstracts, and analysing media abstracts. The student can proceed either according to the deadlines or faster at his/her own pace. The student gets some feedback from the teacher too.
