English: Language Use and Culture (25 ECTS)
The English Language Use and Culture study module is aimed at students who wish to broaden their skills and knowledge of the English language and deepen their understanding of various English-speaking cultures. The module includes studies in English language usage (grammar, vocabulary, speaking skills, writing skills) and society and culture (the USA, Britain, Australia, literature).
After completing the module, students should have a deeper understanding of English-speaking societies and cultures as well as an improved ability to use the English language. Students should also be able to analyse and compare the cultures of several English-speaking societies with their own cultures. Successful completion of the module will provide students with linguistic and cultural support in interactions with English-speaking people across a variety of contexts including work, studies, research, and leisure time.
Students can either complete the whole 25-credit module or take individual courses.
