The objective of English 101 is to develop essential academic English skills to an upper-intermediate level, CEFR B2.  All four skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) are covered on this course at word, sentence and text levels, focusing on a number of different academic English genres. Students will learn how to read, interpret and provide written and spoken descriptions of data charts, using appropriate vocabulary and grammatical forms. They will read academic paragraphs, identify typical discourse markers and use their knowledge of these to write their own paragraphs and produce oral summaries. Students will listen to texts on academic themes, identifying the gist, main ideas and specific details. A basic introduction to the Introduction / Methods / Results / Discussion (IMRAD) structure of academic articles is provided, and students learn to identify these elements in authentic short articles, using them to write a paraphrased summary. Finally, students will learn to participate in evidence-based discussion of opinions using short academic texts. Some of the most frequent general academic vocabulary is learned in context and through a range of exercises. The course objectives are assessed through written and spoken assignments, a mid-term and a final exam. The English 101 book supports students in meeting these objectives, and is continuously revised and updated to reflect the needs of students and the University.
