Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2022-23


  • The subject of Inglés I will be imparted in the last year of the undergraduate degree courses of Engineering and Architecture.
  • The students are strongly advised to have previous knowledge of the language (A2 or equivalent level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
  • Inglés I will necessarily contain solid technical and scientific components linguistically dealt with, which will eventually permit students to tackle oral and written information required in their formal academic and professional training. Specifically, Inglés I seeks to enable students to acquire the abilities and strategies to read and understand oral and written texts of technical and scientific nature.
  • Students should be able to know and reasonably apply linguistic and extra-linguistic resources which feature scientific discourse in English in order to effectively address and solve relevant issues in their particular fields.
