Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The aim of the course is to gradually improve academic writing skills and equip students with tools which can be used in their future academic careers, including writing dissertations. During the course, students learn how to write well-structured academic essays (2000 words) based on sources, but the writing skills are not limited to essays only and can be easily transferred to other types of academic writing. The course provides a solid basis for further and more confident practice in academic writing necessary in the university context.

The main topics during the course include:

1. Criticality and argumentation in academic writing.

2. Reading long texts and synthesising information.

3. Structure and organisation.

4. Cohesion and coherence.

5. Avoiding plagiarism (paraphrasing, summarising and referencing).

6. Features of academic writing.

7. Building discipline-specific vocabulary.

8. Expanding the range of structures (focus on chosen grammar aspects).
