Course description
  ENGLISH I

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2021-22

 

  • The subject of Inglés I will be delivered in the third and fourth years of the undergraduate degree courses of Engineering and Architecture. This subject together with Inglés II will enable students to obtain the University of Alicante’s required English language degree, B1. 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).
  • Both subjects, Inglés I and Inglés II, 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 major issues in their particular fields.
