Course context for academic year 2018-19

Inglés II relies on the assumption that the skills acquired in Inglés I have been grasped. The students should be able to read and understand academic texts readily.They should have enlarged their academic and technical vocabulary to fluently read and understand longer passages to develop writing techniques in the context of science and engineering. Inglés II will also be concerned with academic oral and written expression in the fields of science and engineering.
