> Course overview
This English language course aims at offering insight into 
English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and more specifically English for Academic Writing (EAW). 
EAP is a broader concept that includes a range of different skills needed to interact efficiently in English-speaking academic contexts such as academic reading, listening and note-taking, writing summaries, justifying opinions, interpreting graphical information and writing abstracts and essays, as well as academic correspondence, various application forms (e.g. grants, research programmes, enrolling on a course), and preparing an academic CV. 

Our course will mainly focus on English Academic Writing (EAW) but other skills may become part of class discussion.
