Course Content and Goals Information
|Learning objectives and competences|
- The aim of this course is to help students prepare for the BY51 English exam which is an exam to assess if M.A. students have reached the B1 level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) established by the Council of Europe. For a brief summary of what is required for the B1 level of English see the annotation below. The BYA6 course focuses on practising the reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. It also covers some more advanced grammar to help students progress beyond what they have studied in the BYA5 course, improve their communicative abilities, and extend their vocabulary.
- The lessons in the first part of the semester will be similar in form to those for courses BYA1 – BYA5. The second part of the semester is devoted to exam preparation. The target level according to the CEFR is B1.
- The course is intended to develop students language skills at the intermediate level. Having completed the course, students will be able to:
- generally understand information about familiar topics and situations, such as those met at work, in school, in free time etc., providing they are expressed in a clear and straightforward manner.
- use English to communicate successfully in most situations encountered when travelling abroad.
- create a simple coherent text within a simple context.
- describe experiences and events, ambitions, hopes and plans, and to briefly explain or justify their ideas and statements.
- successfully complete intermediate level grammar exercises.
|Knowledge and skills required for the course|
|Students should be able to: use the past and present tenses in everyday situations; use future forms to discuss plans and to make appointments and predictions; use the present perfect to talk about their experiences; compare things using adjectives; use modals to express permission and obligation; use conditionals to speculate about what could happen in the future; use elementary passive forms; talk about relationships, family, housing, daily routines, food, education and work; ask questions and understand standard English related to familiar topics; manage functional transactions in shops, restaurants and while travelling abroad (e.g. attending language schools, checking information, apologising, requesting and asking permission etc.).|
|Output (Added Knowledge and Skills)|
|Students will improve their knowledge of grammar and vocabulary at intermediate level and acquire reading, writing, listening and speaking skills required for the BY51 English exam, which is an exam to assess the B1 level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) established by the Council of Europe.||Other information|
