LANGUAGE USE AND CULTURE (25 ECTS cr)

The Language Use and Culture study module is aimed at students who have completed the basic studies in a foreign language or who have the corresponding skills. The student may complete the whole 25-credit module or take individual study units according to his/her interests. The studies focus on language structure and vocabulary and on practicing oral and written skills. In addition, the students get a broader and deeper understanding of the country and its culture.

After completing the study module, the student should have an overall picture of English-language culture as well as an improved ability to use the language. The student should be able to analyze and compare the culture of the major English-speaking countries with his/her own culture. Successful completion of the module will provide the student with linguistic and cultural support in interactions with English-speaking people in working life, research, studies, and free time.
