Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. compare the differences between general and technical English language based on the selected specialised texts and topics

2. recognise essential elements (key words) from a complex specialised text and analyse and interpret complex specialised texts

3. define and interpret specialised vocabulary used in texts and use the vocabulary while translating short specialised texts

4. use grammatical structures in both written and spoken communication

5. expand and acquire new communication models

6. provide a critical review of a specialized topic in both written and oral form
