Description

This is the third of four courses designed to develop English language knowledge for use in translation and/or simultaneous interpretation. This course will introduce the students to different genres of texts to further broaden their exposure to authentic materials evident in their chosen career area and develop their awareness and understanding of discourse features of different genres. Their writing skills will be enhanced through the development of research essay writing techniques. Apart from continued exposure to various accents, the students will listen to authentic materials with different registers. They will begin to develop information retaining skills under stress. Their speaking skills will be further enhanced through learning activities and deliberate practice which focus on clarity, fluency, and logical thinking.
