Goals

Students will be encouraged to hone their communication skills through project work carried out in a small group learning environment conducive to genuine student interactions. This approach will complement that of semester 5 and our aim will be:

  • to further improve oral and written communication through regular group work to prepare the students for their future professional responsibilities.
  • to enhance communication skills to convince others of the value of one's opinions, process or project
  • to develop abstract-writing skills
  • to promote awareness of a common scientific and technical culture
  • to work as a team on joint projects and to understand the value of sharing a joint technical and scientific background in a multicultural context
  • to stimulate creativity,individual input and interpersonal skills
  • to master professional presentation tools and to discuss findings with clarity and efficiency
  • to answer general or technical questions constructively, taking into account the specificity of once's audience
  • to monitor one's progress and develop personal improvement strategies for B2 level and beyond
